Davidisms - Lust Versus Love

Here’s another one from my dad. He intentionally and diligently instilled wisdom into his kids. Which helped us develop it ourselves, and pass it on to our kids as well. Here’s what he taught us about love versus lust: Lust can’t wait to get. Love can’t wait to give. Lust uses people for my benefit. Its only desire is that my passions be met. Right now. This minute. When I want them. Me before you. It delights in evil. Lusts of the flesh are dangerous and deadly, and almost always lead to destruction (Gal. 5:19-21). Conversely, love can’t wait to give. To serve the beloved. To appreciate and value the beloved above oneself. You before me. Love is patient and kind. Quick to forgive. Committed to persevering through the ups and downs of life. Love is everlasting (1Cor. 13:4-7). Compare the descriptions. Is it love? Or is it lust? Lust leads to devastation. Love leads to life.
