In God’s beautiful garden without sin, humanity had choice: God’s way or their way. Then sin became the controller and choice became complicated. As Paul explains life under sin, “What I want to do I do not do, but what I do not want to do I do” (Romans 7:15). Thankfully Jesus set us free again to a garden life with no rulers of sin & death over us (Romans 8:2). We have choice. We can rule over our passions; we can once again have self control. In this lesson Dave and Boris teach how to manage this choice and choose love in our relationships instead of bitterness. We can choose not to hold on to what’s wrong.
