Scripture: 2 Samuel 11:2-5,14-26
“The sin of lust has its root in the belief that God’s love is not enough to satisfy our longing for intimacy. We suspect that God is unfairly withholding from us something that we need.” ~ Michael Mangis, Signature Sins: Taming Our Wayward Hearts
“Lust is the craving for salt of a man who is dying of thirst.”~ Frederick Buechner
Prayer: Spirit, you are the greatest gift that can be given, and yet I look for something more elsewhere only to be disappointed. Fill me afresh this day with your love and power, that I would find my joy in you. Amen.
