All desires aren’t equal. Cultivate and follow the desires that make your life better, not worse. Desires that bend toward evil lead to inner torment, guilt, and bondage.
Your focus will determine your desires. They will rise or fall as you feed them or fight them. If you won’t control your desires, they will capture and control you. Desire for more can extinguish the joy and appreciation of what you already have.
When you truly appreciate what you already have, you’ll have enough for great joy. If you have freedom, food, shelter, and clothing, you have enough stuff for a happy life.
Many human desires are disguised longings for God and can only be satisfied by Him. Christians are called to be led by the living Jesus, not dominated by desire.
Forgiveness is too often the missing ingredient in relationships.
