Can we find freedom from alluring temptations and immoral principles that our enemies cast with the hope of holding us hostage? The battle rages within us to adhere to our principles and implement our strategy to do what is right. Often we are overcome with the illusion of elevating our self to a disillusioned reality. Our enemies are very good at manipulating the truth and presenting a package of grandeur which creates conflicting interactions with what we know to be true.
By nature of birth, we have the potential to be tempted and manipulated with every step we take. We are highly susceptible to be drawn into distasteful behavior from a single word that comes from an entire chapter or a single challenge that wanes in comparison to a lifetime lived for righteous ideals. We must be very aware and careful about how we process information which seems out of line with our principles. If we understand what is corrupting us and its dangers, our enemy has less power to occupy our thoughts, words, and actions. We cannot give the enemy a chance to hold us hostage. Our reasoning power to process right and wrong scenarios gives us the opportunity to make sound decisions. Clarity often comes when we realize our dispute is not with others, it is actually with judging and arguing with ourselves. Our confidence can grow when we are surrounded by survivors who have faced similar circumstances that threaten to dishonor us.
Knowing and understanding our antagonists ambition and purpose, gives us a chance to conquer the enemy and secure an opportunity to enrich our life. Our existence can become very guilt ridden and depressing when we cede our will to adversaries. Even in difficult circumstances, our mind can forge astonishing concepts to overcome our foes grip. If we can take charge and get control of our life, we will not become accountable to enemies which seek to undermine our self worth. Our journey through life assures that we will be accountable to someone at some point in time and that doesn’t necessarily mean they are our enemy. We can still maintain our sense of control and manage how we interface with accountability.
Why should we accommodate our enemies desires when we know there is a price to pay in regards to our own ethical code of honor?
