The First Taste

How many alcoholics or chain smokers would now be enslaved if they had stopped with that first awful taste of beer or cigarette smoke? Instead, what did they do? They shuddered, braced themselves, and took another. Adapting new tastes is simply a matter of how strong the motivation is to acquire it.    

What harmful appetites have you created and fed? The flesh knows no limits. “Christian” dads are enslaved to food, laziness, alcohol, tobacco, entertainment, p**n, and even the news. It isn’t always a question of what is wrong with it, but Brothers, how good is it? We will stand before the Lord Jesus and give account of what we did with the bodies and time He entrusted us with.  

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12).
