Immediate gratification only yield instant results. After that, nothing else. Money is good. I recommend it. Living a prosperous life is okay. I am happy for that.
However, when a Christian fails to understand the difference between a one-off gratification and a permanent blessing, his or her life will end up in continuous turmoil.
One African proverbial saying is that, “What a man loves much and cannot part from it, is what will ended up killing him.”
To declare being a born-again Christian and still fails to learn to say a big No, in diverse faces of temptation is detrimental to one’s relationship with God.
Lot wanted the best of the lands. He got it. In addition, he received many troubles with it. Jacobs desired his brother’s firstborn blessings. He had it BUT he added years of destructive forces into his life. David wanted a woman so badly that, for one moment in his life he forgot God, and killed a man just to have her. We all know the results. David, the man after God’s own heart, paid terribly for shedding innocent blood.
What do you want to have by all means that you know is contrary to the will of God?
Don’t Think Once!
Don’t Think Twice!!!
May the Holy Spirit helps you.
