God’s promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine. —David Nicholas
Alle goeie dinge kan misbruik word. Ons fokus gewoonlik op daardie dinge wat duidelik gevaar inhou – soos alkohol. Maar onbeheerstheid dui op die afwesigheid van selfbeheer. Ons glo dat onbeheerstheid in sekere dinge darem nie so erg is nie.
Maar luister na C. S. Lewis (Mere Christianity):
A man who makes his golf or his motor-bicycle the centre of his life, or a woman who devotes all her thoughts to clothes or bridge or her dog, is being just as “intemperate” as someone who gets drunk every evening. Of course, it does not show on the outside so easily: bridge-mania or golf-mania do not make you fall down in the middle of the road. But God is not deceived by externals.
Christene se vervulling kry hulle in Jesus Christus
