I listened with a span of disgust this morning as my friend related to me about a man who is going for a short trip in Ho Chi Min. His intentions is to look for some "fun" over there, without fear, with a relaxing mind and anticipation. He wants to go to karaokes to have a room with his friends and same time, he wants to look at the poor girl stripping off piece by piece... When I heard that, I feel so sad.. sad to hear that there is this man who wants to have that thrill and doing goodness-what.
Then coincidently, today daily bread speaks of lust in humans. The lust of the flesh, the insatiable appetite to indulge in pleasures that inflame the flesh but never satisfy. Well, humans do tend to be lustful, knowing very well, it is just a short pleasure but it is still a never ending lust.
True satisfaction can only be found in our love ones and from our heavenly Father, true relationship is found only when we give our affections to eternal things...
"The world is passing away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever"
