HTGWYRW: Careful what you want for


sunday january 7, 2018


What do you want?

·      When we get our way, we often get in our own way.

·      Pleasure can be addictive, which eventually isn’t pleasure… and not what we want. 

·      Regret begins with “I want” and ends with “I want to go back in time and not get what I wanted.”

What do you want?

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.  When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. – James 4:1-3 NIV


You’ll never get what you really want until you discover what you really value.
