We Like What We Like

Yes.

That’s us today.

Even those who acknowledge God and even try to follow Him well also like their own comfort zones, looking to and trusting their own idols of their lives, of culture, of this time or place.

Listen to yourself today. What do you focus on even more than God? What do you trust, perhaps more than Him? Who do you immediately run to? What do you prefer to do in your own strength? How do you rely on yourself or others more than Him?

Be honest. Until you are, you will not change and grow as God intends.
