In the book 2 Timothy 3 Paul warns us not to desire our pleasures before God. To serve God this requires daily effort and even sacrifice of ourselves at times for the sake of a higher calling. This is where many people fall weak in faith because love for God reminds us of our needs and our responsibilities not only to serve God but to serve others.
It is very easy to obtain a pleasure in life and so many times we use our pleasures to take our minds off of our problems or we use them to fit in with the world. But from a voice of experience when we give in to our pleasures and don’t address our issues this will only prolong the hurt that we carry. I challenge you today and every other day to love God more than your pleasures and He will give you the strength to overcome anything in your life through the love of Jesus Christ…amen
