Thoughts on the Christian’s wanderings

From Ben’s penning,

So much of our lives are wasted running back to our old father, Satan, like a dog returning to its vomit (as Proverbs says).  There is no good there, and yet how do we not see that in the moment?

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. (Proverbs 26:11, NLT)
