Self-Control Instead of Remote Control

I once counseled a man who had a weakness for watching pornographic movies in his motel room when he went on business trips. I told him he needed to use self-control instead of the remote control. If he never turned on the television set, he couldn’t be tempted by it. I advised him to forget the TV, but instead take Christian books and his Bible to read.

It worked. He made a plan before he arrived at the motel to replace television-watching with book-reading. By keeping his mind occupied, he conquered the temptation.
