Entangled in the World
By Rita Davidson
Living in the world but not of it. How NOT to get ENTANGLED.
Modern MUSIC pull you in first with that addictive rhythm – then you ignore the words.
Movies pull you in, first with catchy, emotional soundtracks and favorite actors and actresses – then help you let slide things you normally wouldn’t allow.
Technology, pulls us in making us think we have to be PLUGGED in at all times, giving us the feeling we are missing something. – then we neglect our spiritual life and sometimes our families without even knowing we’ve been sucked in.
Cars keep us pulled in updating our vehicles every three years so we can renew a lease before we lose all that money we put into this one – beware of the trap. Being careful with your cash you can easily purchase a vehicle USED that will last just as long for cheaper.
Clothing will pull us in if we get stuck in NEEDING fashion that keeps us changing to keep up. – soon enough modesty is abandoned because it’s just too hard to find. Be wary of what you approve and like.
Each day we are on a dangerous stairway. It spirals UP and DOWN. WE cannot stand still on one step, but each day must make a CHOICE to MOVE. If we aren’t moving UP which way ARE we moving?
What choices today are pulling you in? Are you traveling UP or DOWN the eternal stairway?

Thank you, Rita, for your recent entry regarding entanglement with the world. Those of us who want to serve the Lord through our little missions sometimes need a mini “smack across the face” to wake us up and remind us what that mission is, and who it serves. I appreciate it.
Glad you enjoyed it Deborah,
we all need these reminders.

This echoes exactly what I have been trying to teach my daughter. I even used one of your books on overcoming sexual sin, to no avail. My recourse now has been to entrust her to St Monica and to Mary’s Immaculate Heart. May all those who have become entangled be rescued from the snares of the evil one. Thank you, Rita, for continuing to lead this fight for souls.
Yes, sometimes no matter what we do our children go astray. It is heartbreaking but sometimes needed for God to work on their souls.I hear this from so many mothers. I’m considering doing a live call with other moms for this?
Don’t give up on her. Just keep praying and being a good example for her. God will change her heart when the time is right.
God bless you!
