Quitting the Habit February 28, 2018

Most of us know someone who is trying to quit smoking. Researchers at the University of California in Los Angeles compared the physiological symptoms of twenty people who quit smoking cold turkey and twenty who cut back slowly. They found that withdrawal symptoms decreased more sharply for those who quit smoking suddenly. Interesting. Many plan one day to eventually make their peace with God and prepare for the next life. But trying to stop the smoking habit by merely cutting back, can be dangerous, because one may run out of time. Solomon, the world’s wisest man warned, “do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” Wisdom compels us to act quickly, by acknowledging our spiritual bankruptcy, since “there is none righteous, no not one,” and to invite Christ into our lives while there is still time
