A desire-driven lifestyle is dominated by self-focus. People who are dictated by self-focused desires are never satisfied. If you won’t control your cravings, your cravings will control you.
Desire-driven decisions demonstrate a lack of self-control. When people allow themselves to be controlled by cravings, they punish themselves by making pain-producing choices. If you won’t put some brakes on your desires, they will eventually break you.
Desire-driven decisions like to detour around wisdom. When your craving for self-gratification is greater than your hunger and thirst for righteousness, you’ll make unwise rebellious choices.
Human beings weren’t created to be cravings-controlled puppets. People have the right to follow self-focused cravings, but they don’t have the right to demand that you approve of their choices.
Desire-driven Christianity avoids being Spirit-led. Craving-controlled people have lost their freedom. The living Jesus can restore it! Christ-followers are called to be led by the Spirit, not controlled by cravings. See Romans 8:14.
