Have you ever seen a dog eat its own puke, or even worse than that, eat a fresh piece of *shudder* poo?!?! Either scenario is quite disgusting! Have you ever had this nagging “thing” in your life…this sin, this mistake, this thorn in your side, this bad habit… whatever you want to call it, that you keep trying to quit but you just keep goin right back to it?!? We’ve all been there right? Doesn’t that make us no better than the dog? Proverbs 26:11 says, As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. The reason we repeat sin is because we are trying to stop in our own strength. We can’t do that! We have to rely on Christ.
If you have something you just can’t shake, learn to trust The One who made you, He can help you get through it! Get you a good support/accountability group of good, Christian friends you can be honest with and that you know will pray for you. And when you mess up, don’t beat yourself up! The moral of the story is… If you keep on and on making the same mistakes you may as well eat your own puke… or even worse! Eww!
