Romans 7:21New International Version (NIV)
21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.
Why is it so hard to do RIGHT!
Wrong is easy, its instant, it’s fun.
Cookies vs Carrots
Cookies instantly make your taste buds rejoice. Right now, today. The more you eat the more you want. The end result; a tummy that resembles every bad choice you put in your mouth.
Carrots are bland even dipped in ranch dressing. The more you eat the less you want. The end result; a tummy that resembles every good choice you made.
We make wrong choices because we simply don’t want to WAIT.
We want it now, and we will worry about the consequences later.
The scripture lets us know we WANT to do whats right, whats good; but there is always a “easy way out” tempting us to give in to todays wants not tomorrow’s needs
