When Pinnochio went to the fair....

The addictive process is a lot like when Pinnochio went to the fair. Remember the story? He was trying very hard to be a little boy. One day on the way to school with a couple of friends, he took the wrong turn and went to the fair instead. They saw an awful lot of upset donkeys on the way to the fair but really thought nothing of it.

The fair was a lot of fun. It did seem strange that some of the other boys at the fair had very odd ears and some even had tails, but that was their problem, not his. Pinnochio even noticed that some said Hee-Haw uncontrollably, but he was too busy playing to worry about that! Even after his first Hee-Haw he didn’t slow down. Surprisingly, seeing his friends with ears and tails and spouting incessant Hee-Haws did not deter his quest of play. And then it happened, Pinnochio played too long and he wasn’t a little boy any more, he was just another angry donkey.

Isn't the place Pinocchio went called, "Pleasure Island"?    
"Thanks, Roger, for reminding us of the message Walt Disney was trying to convey in his classic film."

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
