How can we overcome addictions?
Addictions come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are of course addictions to hard drugs. But there are other kinds of addictions. Internet addiction, gaming addiction, an addiction to buying things or keeping things, an addiction to approval, an addiction to being in love.
As a rule, addictions take over our lives and prevent us from doing the healthy things we were meant to do.
Probably all of us get into a rut, where we know something in our life has too much of a hold on our heart and yet, it’s hard to stop. And so, we all need to know how to control our addictions. Because if we can maintain balance, we can be healthy individuals, with healthy relationships, who help people and have the best possible future.
The Good News is that… The Bible shows us the way to overcome addictions.
1. We should expect trouble, and
2. We should share God’s mission
