Romans 7:21-23 (NIV)
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.
I've had a question rolling around in my mind for the past few weeks, and perhaps it's an appropriate topic for the first post after this long silence. The question is this, "Why do I fail to do the things I know I should, and instead do the things I probably shouldn't?"

Here's a simple list:
Things I Should DoThings I Shouldn't Do
Update the blogWatch TV
PrayPlay games
Read the BibleRandom web surfing
ExerciseRead sci-fi novels
Lose weightEat junk food

As near as I can tell, I pretty much avoid the left side and concentrate on the right. Why is that?

...more to come on this topic.
