Sometimes we are taken up with something that might be harmful, or more likely for many of us is just not all that profitable. And we find ourselves wanting to get out of it, but it has become a habit, and even way of life nearly, with us. How do we get out of it?
One important way is replacement. We need to replace the one activity with another. Of course that should involve prayer to know what we should do.
This matter can come up in many ways, big and small. Just the same we need to better understand from God what we should do, and what is not really good for us to do, knowing where to draw the lines. Otherwise quite subtly the matter can become a sin issue to us, and can involve sin.
Part of what got David in trouble when he should have been doing, I would think, what kings did.
Anyone have anything you'd like to add to this?
