So often, we are aware we need to look up, yet we keeping looking around. We know we need to let go, yet we cling to what we feel is most enjoyable that we think we cannot live without. Notice how strongly of a desire we feel to continue to want to give in to temporary things we eventually begin to hate, the, same things thought we loved.
Notice God’s conversation with Cain in the very beginning..
If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”
The desires of sin are of course unhealthy for us, and we must begin to notice their effects. Just as eating unhealthy foods can lead to a life of problems and an unnatural death, the same should be looked upon when choosing to want to live a life of battling and overcoming our sin struggles for Jesus who gives us strength.
