What bad habits or addictions do you need to get rid of? - Daily Bible Reflections August 1,2015

YOU CAN BE FREE!
 
“It shall be a jubilee for you...” – Leviticus 25:10
 
       Houdini was probably the most famous escape artist in the world. I’m not sure if this story is part legend and part history, but I find it utterly fascinating.
       Houdini boasted he could escape any jail cell in less than an hour. One day, a small town in the British Isles built a new jail cell and they were proud of it. “Come, give us a try,” they said to Houdini. He walked into the prison cell bristling with confidence. Once the jail cell was closed, Houdini took off his coat and went to work. From his belt, he got a flexible but tough 10-inch piece of steel. He started working on the lock.
       At the end of 30 minutes, his confident expression had faded. After two hours and totally exhausted, Houdini collapsed against the door, which swung open! The door had never been locked.
       It was locked only in one place: in his own mind. Which meant only one thing. It was firmly locked. Because whatever your mind says is locked — is locked. Even if it isn’t…
       Friend, you can get rid of your bad habits. You can be free from your addictions.
       But first you have to push it hard out of your mind. Then it shall be a jubilee for you — a fresh start. Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: What bad habits or addictions do you need to get rid of?
 
Heal me, Lord, and let me be free from the things that enslave me.
 
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
