I am currently reading ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ by Rick Warren. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.
I wanted to share something that Rick Warren wrote that I think is worth thinking about;
‘If you are serious about defeating temptation you must manage your mind and monitor your media intake. The wisest man who ever lived warned, “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” Don’t allow trash into your mind indiscriminately. Be selective. Choose carefully what you think about. Follow Paul’s model: “We capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.” This takes a lifetime of practice, but with the help of the Holy Spirit you can reprogram the way you think.’
Isn’t that what being sober is all about? Changing the way you think? I think so.
