It feels good

So on Wednesday my friend Dave talked about the things we let into our minds through the media. And let me tell you that message rubbed me the wrong way, given that I had just started watching a movie that was admittedly lacking in substance. But you can’t fight the truth. The things we put into our mind that don’t lift us up to God pull us down away from Him. It sucks, but there’s really no middle ground.

So then, why is it so hard to let go of the things that hurt us or that even just fill us up with empty calories?

Because it tastes good.

It feels good. It sounds good. It looks good. That’s the thing with sin.  It’s designed to draw us away or at least distract us from the One who really loves us. It really is sad. I could say more, but The Arrows say it so much better.

Something to think about.
