Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You well know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing—but by then it was too late, tears or no tears. Hebrews 12:16-17 (TM)
Sometimes I’m discouraged at how our culture, and me as a part of it, are so distracted by short-term appetites. We are so absorbed by spiritual junk food that clogs the Body’s arteries and does nothing to satisfy our hearts.
