You can tell out a lot about a person by finding out what their desires are. Our desires are the focus of our lives. The kind of appetite we have reveals a great deal about our character. A strong appetite for things that come from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life says a lot about our character. In same way a strong appetite for things that are righteous, holy and true also says a lot about our character.
You could almost say that our desires define us. The things we desire the most are the things we pursue the most. The things we pursue the most define who we are and what we do. This is true whether these desires are right desires or wrong desires. What are the things that a believer should desire?
