What are you holding on to?

A hunter, to catch a baboon, will put bait in a hole in a tree. The baboon will put his hand in, grab the bait, and will not be able to pull his hand out. Instead of letting go of the bait, the baboon will stay there for days with his hand in the tree, until he either starves or the hunter returns to kill him. What am I holding on to that may be slowly killing me? It's so easy to think, "You stupid baboon! Just let go of the bait and you'll be fine!". But I do the same thing, holding on to something that God wants me to let go of. It's just not as obvious to me as the stubborn baboon! Open my eyes Lord!
