A close friend returned from an extended mission trip in Asia. He came home with great stories and deepened faith. And one other thing.
A pair of chopsticks.
Talk about annoying. Every time we had lunch at a Chinese restaurant, he ate everything but the soup with chopsticks. And he wasn’t even good at it. It took him three hours just to finish the rice.
Some people make things more complicated than they have to be.
I have friends in recovery that do the same thing. They read every book, hear every podcast, and attend every conference. The one thing they don’t do is quit acting out.
The problem is rarely that we don’t know what to do, but that we don’t do what we know.
Recovery Step: “The Lord preserves the simple” (Psalm 116:6). Do what you already know. Don’t make recovery too complicated.
