Love over Lust

When lust enters your heart, love is absent. Lust is defiling and degrading. Lust is a worldly pursuit that ignores love and the intent of God. Lust defies the authority of God and His plan to make us whole in partnership with love as the center-piece. Lust hurts both people involved by leaving them at best, empty and at worst, scared. Our love for a person should keep us from putting them in a position to be hurt. They can protected from that hurt with love that will not allow lust to destroy the better design of God.

thH0FCPT36

(1 Corinthians 13:4-7) Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
