The analytical may not always develop the simplest solution, yet the end result makes much more sense than policies created by politicians. In many cases, adults are treated like high school students, punishing the masses for the sins of a few. Meanwhile, public service announcements assume that alcoholics, drug addicts and out of control gamblers can change just by listening to an ad.
A psalm of David. I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you, Psalm 141:1.
According to motivational speakers, the key to transforming individuals begins and ends with one’s attitude. Attitudes are like navigational devices, steering people based upon their moods either in positive or negative directions. However, if you can encourage someone’s attitude to change, they can turn around their own life.
Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies, Psalm 141:4.
Any plan which neglects attitudes will lead to false assumptions. Few addicts can and will able to quit cold turkey, able to walk away without ever succumbing to temptations of the past. Rather, if anyone wants a realistic approach to break free from past demons, pray for a new attitude. May this journey lead to life altering results.
