Colossians 3:5 (ESV) “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.”
Being truthful about where we are in life often takes brutally honesty. Seven years of telling a therapist what I thought he wanted to hear did not solve my anger problem. But being truthful with myself and God brought me the peace I needed. Otherwise I would have lost my family. Inside each of us is a sense that things are not as they should be. Something is broken. Something we can’t fix ourselves. We can go on playing the game or we can look at ourselves with Truth. In what area of my life do I need help? If we listen to God and heed what He says, then we can change the way we live and become more like Him! How awesome is that? Don’t even think about making that excuse! Seek out and live by God’s Word and you’ll live life to the fullest, and in His fullness.
