an excerpt from Rick Warren's Daily Devotional - day 324 of 365 from www.YouVersion.com
The Bible says we're to refocus our attention because trying to resist a thought simply doesn't work. It only intensifies our focus on the wrong thing and strengthens its allure.
In other words, whatever you resist, persists.
Since temptation always begins with a thought, the quickest way to neutralize its allure is to turn your attention to something else. Don't fight the thought, just change the channel of your mind and get interested in another idea.
