S-cripture: 2 Peter 2:19b For “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.” O-bservation: This entire chapter has to do with St. Peter endeavoring to help "Jesus Followers" avoid false teachers. Many of the people in his day were being deceived by false teachers. Peter said they were like "a sow who had been washed clean returning to the mud" (v.22). Consequently, Peter says in this passage that "people become slaves to whatever they've allowed to master them." A-pplication: The process of moving away from our old sinful life towards a life that is pleasing to Jesus...
