The Same Mistake
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
So often we want to make excuses for our behaviors, patterns, and problems. Sometimes there are real addictions and we need help. But many times, the issue remains because of immaturity in our lives. Remember that we have the power to control what we think about, which is why Paul again tells us in Phil. 4:8
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
When we make mistakes, we own up to them and trust God to help us move on. When we come back to the same things over and over we begin to feel defeated. But it’s not a matter of God not being big enough…it is usually a matter of our thinking being wrong and our maturity level not being high enough.
So…what choices have you been making that you need to change?
