Thus, do follow God's direction or will for your life. Because, sooner or later, you will be glad that you did. Besides, God's will or direction is the best for you.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Fallibility is simply defined as state of being capable of making mistakes or being wrong sometimes. Permit me to tell you this, every human is fallible in nature. Yes! you heard me right as usual, even the Pope himself is fallible in nature. Although, he is widely regarded as infallible according to the dogma of the Roman catholic church. But come on, is the pope (a) catholic? Nevertheless, it is delusion to regard anyone as infallible. I mean, anyone who regards any human as incapable of making mistakes or being wrong is nothing but delusive. Besides, whoever that claims to be infallible has never tried out something new before and it is only a coward who is often reluctant to try out something new, just because of fear of failure. Come on, is the Pope (a) catholic? Furthermore, in case you don't know, almighty God is the only one who is ever infallible. Apart from him (Almighty God) no other person is infallible in nature. Anyway, do quote me right or rather you can say I said so QED.
