Day 4 of 5 from Slay Your Dragon by Daniel Kolenda on YouVersion read by Brian and Andi Hale
Get Rid of Your Dragon While It’s Young
The easiest way to kill a dragon is to smash it while it is still inside its egg. Big sins grow from small seeds. If you can be honest with yourself, you will often realize what is going on.
For instance, I have always hated haircuts. But years ago I started going to a salon where things changed. The lady I was assigned to was very attractive and interesting to talk to. When she cut my hair, the time flew by. I went to that salon for about two months and enjoyed my interaction with this lady each time.
One day I woke up and saw that I had a haircut scheduled for that day. I felt a flutter of excitement inside. I was excited at the thought of seeing that woman. Now, I should mention that I was married at that time with two or three children. So I called the salon, canceled my appointment, and never went back.
Most likely that situation would never have developed into anything serious. I am fully aware of that. I am also aware that every affair could be traced back to a little, innocent flutter of excitement.
If you can kill a dragon in its gestation period, you will never have to battle a monster. Realize when you are coddling a monster in the making and kill it quickly!
