My flesh believes easIER is the best, and my flesh enormously influences my life, so that my biggest idol, is easIER. But easIER is not the best. Scripture says the BEST is whatever Jesus has for me this day, week, month, year. My flesh says the BEST is whatever is easIER, or easIEST. My flesh knows NOTHing about delivering happiness to Dave, but it THINKS it does, and it convinces ME it does, in my less-sane moments. When I believe my flesh’s view of reality, I simply become further addicted to trying to control my world. And getting my way, just strengthens my addiction.
