Psychological Fix
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. --- 1 Timothy 4:7-9

The advertising industry is an elite authority in presenting ideas, images and products that give us immediate solutions to matters we don't always handle properly with godly wisdom. More and more people are living in temporary illusions, and they sleep through their reality until something happens to interrupt their psychological fix. Then they are left with no choice but to face and deal with what is real. Here is an example: A man consents to taking a health product that improves his overall physical stamina without first consulting with his doctor. A woman with pre-existing health conditions straps herself up in body cinching gear so she can have a more appealing appearance. The man and the woman meet and decide to go have dinner. While dining on a fine meal, both become ill and must be rushed to the hospital by ambulance. It turns out that a seasoning in the meal had an adverse effect on the man's system due to a chemical within the health product he takes. As for the woman, her organs were pressed too close for her natural digestion process to take place, causing an elevated pressure reaction throughout her body. How much better off they both would be if they were patient with bettering themselves in safe and practical ways while they put their main focus on developing the inner godliness that holds the promise of letting them enjoy who they are now and who they can be in the future. Do not sell yourself short to industry. Bypass the psychological fix and invest yourself in Jesus. What He has to offer is good and everlasting.
