[Doin’ it] Again…

Many nights after  I leave work I turn on Pandora and listen to some Neo-Soul on my way home.  It is relaxing to me but sometimes the themes of the song catch my ear.  Most songs pertain to relationships and one of my favortie artist John Legend  has a history of talking about the side that isn’t as popular, cheating.  The video below is one of those songs that caught my ear.

In the song Legend implies that their affair is going to end cause it’s wrong, but they eventually ended up in a relationship and now that they are together they can’t trust each other. The problem is they are addicted to each other so it’s hard, if not impossible, for them to walk away from each other. No matter how much they try to end the relationship.

Now, I want you to listen to the song carefully and replace “it” with whatever sin you struggle with.  The reason I want you to do this is that this song seems to refer to all types of addictions:

  • mainly love
  • relationships
  • cheating
  • drama
  • sex
  • drugs
  • basically anything attractive and intoxicating that is potentially toxic.

Keep this in mind: The opposite of [the] worship [of God] is idolatry. Every human being—at every moment of their life, today and into eternity is unceasingly doing either the former or the latter.

Lyrics (if needed)

What are your thoughts after listing to this song?

Does this describe your relationship with [your] sin?
