Tells us about a guilty pleasure you hate to love. Okay, I must be honest, I hate sin. But, as a human being I do it everyday and sometimes it is enjoyable. Anything that takes our eyes off of The Savior and living for Him can be classified as sin. Eating more than I should, that is a sin. Not exercising enough, that is a sin. Anytime we don’t take care of the earthen vessel God gave us in these bodies, we sin.
Which leads me to what I truly hate to love– Chocolate!! My wife and I were shopping today and she picked up some goodies for baking. I passed the boxes of chocolate cake mix and said, “Ooooh! Look! This would be so good!!! And so would this one, and this one, and OOOOHHH!!!! This one is chocolate and caramel!!!!!” She cares about me spiritually, mentally and physically, so of course, my bride said, “NO!!! Put the box down!” I like my life with all its guilty pleasures and so, I put the box down. I’ll just have to sneak a snack size chocolate bar somewhere else at another time.
Of course, God already knows I will fall time after time after time, but the key is to keep moving forward and ask God for the strength to stand up against it when the temptation comes. My wife is very good at keeping me directed. I truly believe God brought us together so I can be the best version of me I can be for His service.
