Before Jesus becomes our guide, we are generally drawn to things that are destructive to our well-being. Destructive thoughts, relationships, behaviours. Healthy thoughts, relationships and behaviours almost repulse us. They seem boring and gross.
After Jesus comes into our lives, we begin to find attractive life-giving and life-enhancing thoughts, relationships and behaviours.
That only makes sense since we were created to live abundantly even in the face of forces that are out to destroy us.
