The Death Of Growing Desire

ENGLISH

Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.—James 1:15

Desire is not a static thing in the life of a man. It grows, much like a human life grows inside the womb of a woman. It starts with a longing that develops until it matures into a decision, action, and routine behavior. But at some point, it is transformed because desire is conceived. But an evil desire does not give birth to life; on the contrary, it brings death. But here's the question that begs to be answered. Why do so many men go through all that labor to produce something that produces nothing? Sounds like a waste of time and energy to me.

ASK THIS: What evil desires are bringing you death?

DO THIS: Desire what's good and holy.

PRAY THIS: God, kill my evil desires, and simultaneously replace them with holy desires.
