Love Over Lust


“Lust is the craving for salt of a man who is dying of thirst.” - Frederick Buechner

By our very nature we can crave that which hurts us the most: some want what they can never have and others want that which will only lead to destruction.  Many think that by living by their lusts they are livin’ it up.  Lust soon spirals them downward, leaving them emptier than they began, but still wanting more.  My prayer today is that instead of lust we choose love.  God is love.  Let Jesus quench your thirst. 

Jesus replied, "If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water” (John 4:10, NLT).
