Teachback Tuesday-Escaping the Bondage of Self-Indulgence

September 5th, 2022

Welcome to Teachback Tuesday, where you'll hear the most popular episodes from the previous season. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of self-indulgence is “excessive or unrestrained gratification of one's own appetites, desires, or whims.” Here are some signs that you may be struggling with self-indulgence:

  • You have an income but no money because of your spending habits
  • You repeatedly complain about your weight but you keep eating things that are great for packing on the pounds
  • Arriving late is your trademark for almost everything because of poor time management
  • You allow yourself to be moody and expect people to just deal with it
  • You’re taking poor care of your health but making excuses for it

Self-indulgence is self-inflicted bondage. You are in prison and holding the keys. Living like this makes life less enjoyable and more stressful. We don’t realize it at first, but the self-indulgent life seems like it would reward us, but it actually robs and enslaves us. We don't have to live like this. There is a way out.

God can put His finger on our particular weaknesses and help us to overcome them by His power and might, not by our own. This 3-point lesson provides helpful reminders on how we can turn our lives from the agony of repeated defeat to the joy of victories in Christ.
