What Distracts You?
Read Hosea 9:10
We’re not that different from the Israelites. Couple our own self-doubt with the promise of a good time, harmless fun, or that no one will know, and we can be just as easily enticed to sin. Over time, continual sin causes us to lose focus on God the same way Israel lost focus on God. Pretty soon, we’re doing things we said we’d never do, going places we said we’d never go and saying things we said we’d never say.
