Read the following Bible passage, then answer the short questions. Consider the practical suggestions at the end of the study.
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
1. Do problems in your life seem too complex to tackle?
2. Has trying to "out smart" a porn habit left you feeling like an imbecile?
If Iím in the midst of a struggle with lust and/or pornography, it seems to be easier in my mind to chalk up the failures to the complexity of the situation in my particular life ó "Hey, there are intricate, hard to understand and unavoidable pressures which lead up to my failures. No one could do better." There! Rationalization 101 has staved off the guilt for yet another day.
Does this sound familiar? If so, then todayís verse is rich in intellectual acumen ó if you want to act wisely in dealing with your problem, then employ the KISS principle: Keep It Simple, Stupid. Godís word (His testimony through the Bible) can be a sure thing for you! It contains great news (click here, if you haven't heard this news), great insights, great strategies and great relief, and if you simply come to it, a revelation of the greatest love you'll ever know.
Try responding to your "difficult" problem with a "simple" solution.
