Overcoming Hormones



Back in the day, it was written: "Thou shalt not murder!" Hate is murder. Anger is murder. Insults are murder. Stop it! Fix it!

Back in the day, it was written: "Thou shalt not cheat on thy spouse!" Lust is cheating. You are the Bride of Christ - lusting for anything else is cheating. What causes you to cheat? Discover it and get rid of it! Addiction? The wrong crowd? Poor role models? Drop it! Fix it!

Back in the day, it was written: "Thou shalt not leave thy spouse without just cause and due process!" Indifference is abandonment. Abuse is abandonment, is cheating, is murder. Stop it! Fix it!

Back in the day, it was written: "Thou shalt not lie!" Posing is a lie. Gossip is a lie. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Stop it! Fix it!

Back in the day, it was written: "Thou shalt not speak thy Lord's name in vain!" Judging for Him lessens His name. Putting Him in your box lessens His name. Swearing on His name lessens it. Stop it! Fix it!
