I was on my treadmill and felt a small stone in my shoe. 
I was on the timer so I kept going & it kept bothering me.
     I had two choices: 
 1) stop the treadmill and get it out of my shoe or 
            2) try to keep going.

I just kept on going and shaking my foot trying to get it out of the way. 
But it didn’t make any difference and it slowed me down.
It’s the same way with people in our lives.  
     We have two choices:

            1) let go of the habits that plague us, or 
            2) hang on to those bad habits and let them drag us down.

One makes the run through life easier, the other harder.
Hanging on to habits and sins makes life more difficult. 
      King Solomon put it this way in Proverbs 28:13 –  
               “He who hides his sins shall not prosper. 
But he who confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”

How much easier the rest of my walk was after I removed the stone
and how miserable it was until I did.

Grace to you,
Dr. Jack Kemper
Sr. Pastor
