Proverbs 26:11 – 11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.
As Christians we are to give our lives over to Christ and die to our own. This means we choose now to live as Jesus and God would want us to live.
Does the Lord want you to use foul language? Are we supposed to live our lives in a rage? Are we supposed lie or be of the truth?
Colossians 3:8 – 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
Are we supposed to forgive?
Colossians 3:13 – 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Mark 11:25 – 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
As Christians we are asked to serve the Lord and step away from our sinful worldly lives. When we don’t do that, we are returning to our vomit. It says just like a dog returns back to its vomit, so fools will return back to their old sinful habits.
When we’re sitting and watching something on TV or a movie and your spirit begins to make you squirm a bit, it’s because you’re being given a warning from the Lord. It’s a warning of, “Hey, I’m in here and I hate that stuff and you need to also.”
You have seen the old Hollywood version of the angel and devil popping up on each side of a person’s head. It might look silly, but it does give a good depiction of our spirit and the decisions we have to make every day. Ignore one of them long enough and they don’t pop up to say anything to your spirit. If you’re suppressing the sinful side, that’s a good thing. If you’re suppressing the good side, you’re on your way back to the puke pile.
There’s a battle going on around you, for you, that you are a part of rather you like it or not. You don’t have to accept it to be a part of it. It’s been going on for about six thousand years on this earth.
Choose to be on the right side of the King of Kings. Since your decisions in life matter to Him, make them based on Him.
Almost all of us have seen an animal return back to their vomit and it’s gross. When we continue to return back to our sinful lives, God has let us know that it’s viewed the same way. Make a conscience effort that if it bothers God, it must be important that I don’t do it.
