Just can’t get enough

ESKIMOS used to have a very intriguing way of killing the wolves that they would regularly have to fight in the cold lands. They would put a knife in the ice, blade up. They would take animal blood, put it over the knife, and freeze it. A wolf would smell the blood that was now covering the ice and begin to attempt to lick the blood off.
It tasted good to the wolf so the wolf would lick faster and faster and harder and harder, never detecting the sting on its own tongue. All the animal knew was that the blood, unknowingly his own blood, tasted good. The next day the wolf would be dead. It had eaten its own blood because it just couldn’t get enough.
We are eating ourselves alive today with sex. We can’t get enough. We can’t get enough on the TV. We can’t get enough on cable. We can’t get enough on Playboy channels. We can’t get enough on HBO. We can’t get enough of the magazines. We can’t get enough of Victoria’s Secrets. We can’t get enough, So, since we can’t get enough, we keep licking harder and faster. What we find ourselves doing is aborting more babies, having more children out of wedlock, fighting more diseases because we can’t get enough and the judgment for this sin is built in to the disobedience.
