SHORT THOUGHTS: Just because you can, does not mean you should. Actions have consequences and consequences can affect many people. Everything put before us is not beneficial for us or others close to us. Some, if chosen are down right destructive not only to ourselves but to those closest to us. Because of this power we hold, we must remember the ripple effect and choose wisely.
Your choices can have good ripple affects (G.R.E.), bad ripple effects (B.R.E.), null ripple effects (N.R.E.) or a combination of any of the previous effects (C.O.A.O.T.P.E.). It's all up to you as the choice is yours to make. Big responsibility I know. Make a smart choice and make it count.

1 Corinthians 6:12 (NIV)
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
