What’s your precious?

If you have ever watched any of the Lord of the Rings movies, you are familiar with Gollum. He was a hobbit who was corrupted by the Ring. It changed him. Because of this corruption, it changed his name and who he was. He became a split personality. He was hunched over. All for the power of the Ring — his precious.

What is your precious?

What is the thing that has corrupted you? What is the thing that has changed you? What has had an impact on you and changed you? What hunches you over?
