To Be or Not to Be: Addicted? Part 1

Dearly Beloved,

To be or not to be: Addicted?  Hopefully, your answer would be the latter.  According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of addiction is a strong and harmful need to have something or do something.  Additionally, addiction is defined as an unusually, great interest in something or a need to do or have something. Warriors, journey with me for a line or two.  Truth is what sets us free right?

Addictions are one commonality that all of us as human beings have experienced.  The difference is some of us are exposed, and some of us not.  It’s those secret things that nobody knows about but you and God above.  Addictions, are those vices that crepitate and slither through our souls and its ultimate goal is to steal, kill, and destroy us.

Consider this: 2 Peter 2:19 (NIV) says, “they promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity”for people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.” In order to capture the full scope, I invite you to read the entire book of 2nd Peter.  For the sake of this missive, our focus is on the latter part of this verse.  Now ask yourself this question what I am the slave to?  What am I allowing to master me?  Is it food, drugs, sex, alcohol (excessive use), pornography, social media, cell phones, technology, etc.? Ponder, ponder, ponder….there’s more to come stay tuned for Part 2 of To Be or Not to Be: Addicted?
