If I said to you, "Thou shalt not think of a purple elephant," - sud­denly, you would be able to think of nothing else. But, if I then set before you a huge hot fudge sundae - creamy Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, laced with deep dark fudge, topped with mounds of whipped cream, lightly toasted almonds, and a juicy red cherry - the purple elephant wouldn’t enter your mind because you’d be captivated by something much better right before your eyes.

So it is that Paul can tell us with authority, "I advise you to live accord­ing to your new life in the Holy Spirit. Then you won‘t be doing what -your sinful nature craves." Galatians 5:16 (NLT)
