Throw out anything tainted with evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
I learned bad habits by doing bad things. I did bad things because they felt good. Notice I said ‘they felt good’ not ‘they were right.’
Recovery is about doing the right thing. We are all born knowing the difference between right and wrong. Most of us end up in trouble because we choose to do wrong. I did.
In recovery and in life the best source I have found to learn the right thing from is the Bible. God created us in His image and He gave us His Word as a guide of how to live life as He wants us to.
- Do you read the Bible?
- Do you Pray?
- If not, why not?
- Are you willing to start?
Prayer: God today give me a desire to do the right thing. Give me a thirst to know Your Word and to apply it to my life.
