Trading One Vice for Another

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5

Am I Satisfied and content with such things that I have? I find myself looking at others at church, comparing my clothing and seeing how it stacks up with what other female parishioners wear. I don't really think that God would be very pleased that these things go through my mind while I'm at church to focus on my faith walk with Him.

What's more than that, when I'm spending this time comparing styles, I am putting up a roadblock in my heart. In reality I'm making worldly things a priority rather than focusing on Christ and the message that's shared. This makes me sad to admit this!

I didn't want to trade one vice for another. Food had become a false god in my life, because I turned to it instead of turning to Christ when I felt stressed, etc. It seems that I've ended up trading worldly things or maybe I should say added worldly things as an additional vice. The funny thing is, I pride myself in not getting caught up in a worldly focus, but it appears that I have just been deceiving myself. Fortunately, God has led me to become aware of this. If He's gone to such great lengths to do this, He will cure me of this worldly focus if I ask Him. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5


Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
