If there should be any weaknesses of our humanity is that we always seek the gratification of our flesh, that our happiness is the end pursuit that drives every single wickedness of our heart. This applies to Christians as well, when we in the name of our religion, clamour after the blessings like any pagan would on their altar of sacrifice, to invoke the goodwill of their gods, we simply legitimize it. That’s just idolatry in another disguise.
Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
When we put our eyes on the things that He could give, we put the created things above the creator. That so our hearts can be so consumed by the pleasures of this world that it completely hardened our hearts because we are ultimately our own god. Forgive me, and let me put my eyes and my heart’s desire in You.
