Playing the fool
Playing the fool with recovery is squandering our chance at reform. Sometimes play at becoming different. Maybe we are not ready to go all the way. Not willing to seek or to do God’s will, not anxious to experience real life change. The insanity of our addictive compulsive behaviours is that though many of us stand at the threshold of a miracle, we withdraw, say NO and opt for relapse instead.
Saul confessed, “I’ve sinned! Oh, come back, my dear son David! I won’t hurt you anymore. You’ve honoured me this day, treating my life as most precious. And I’ve acted the fool—a moral dunce, a real clown.” 1 Samuel 26:21
