Welcome to our website!
I came across this piece which suggests what Satan’s strategy might be to keep Christians from living lives which intentionally focus on their values and priorities.
(1) Keep them busy with non-essentials. (2) Tempt them to overspend and go into debt. (3) Make them work long hours to maintain empty lifestyles. (4) Discourage them from spending family time, for when homes disintegrate there’s no refuge from work (5) Over-stimulate their minds with television and media so that they can’t hear God speaking to hem. (6) Fill their coffee tables and inboxes with magazines and newspapers, so they’ve no time for Bible reading.
(7) Flood their mailboxes with sweepstakes, promotions and get-rich-quick schemes. (8) Put glamorous models on TV and billboards to keep them focused on outward appearances; that way they ‘Il be satisfied with themselves and their friends. (9) Emphasise Santa and the Easter Bunny; that way you’ll divert from the real meaning of the season.
(10) Involve them in ‘good causes’ so they won’t have any time for ‘eternal ones’. (11) Make them self-sufficient. Keep them so busy working in their own strength that they’ll never experience God’s power working through them.
Sometimes being B-U-S-Y just means “Being Under Satan’s Yoke!”
