Yom Kippor

Time out to think about it and as ... says admit and quit and fix it!

statutes and forgiveness

It's important to know about the statutes and forgiveness of our sins, particularly on the road. Sometimes/usually, when one gets a speeding or traffic ticket, he/she can understand that they are wrong for what they did and pre-pay the fine without setting foot in the court room - after all, roughly 10% of cited cases ever set foot in the court room. There are also statutes of limitations on our sins where we can either seek forgiveness on Yom Kippur or wait for an open and shut case to become inactive after more than 3-5 years between the law and the car insurance companies...Ultimately, it's all a matter of humility and fear of G-d that drives us to do good or better in life. At least with some people, guilt almost always keeps them in check, such as myself in particular.
