Are you sure desire is the mother of sin?

What does a good desire, a right desire look like? Well, sometimes I’m really not sure I could say.

Is it what makes us happy? You could say that. Is it what moves us to become more of the person we are supposed to be? I’m confident that it is. Is it something that we can share with other people — to make their lives better? Most likely.

All of our desires are the parts of us that show us our greatest strengths and our greatest weaknesses at the same time. Sin is not in our desires, but in how we act upon them. They will either be executed in such a way as to bring us more into submission to Christ, or to seek to subvert His just rule in our lives.

    1. Oh, you’re welcome–thanks for stopping by. Success is so close to all of our hearts, isn’t it? I pray that God would continue to inform you of the kind of success He wants to see and accomplish in your life.
