Lust will shipwreck a leader. Does today find you struggling to keep your appetites in check?
Lust takes on different forms, but the end result is always the same. Emptiness.
Lust is defined as “a passionate or overmastering desire or craving.”
Are there areas in your life where you have failed to master your appetites? Maybe you have a hunger for power? A craving for cash? A desire for pleasure?
The problem with lust is that, unlike Snickers, it never satisfies. It is always an illusion of what “might” be.
The Bible refers to this illusion in Proverbs 27:20. It reads, “Death and Destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.”
Did you catch that? The eyes are never satisfied!
There will always be a newer make and model; a latest and greatest product; a sleeker and sexier person.
Don’t buy the lie. Remember, the eyes are never satisfied.
If you want to be a leader who leads with integrity, you must find your satisfaction in something other than what you see. Lust will never bring you what you want and it might eventually be your undoing.
