A desire is a hunger, a craving, a preoccupation, and an internal aim for an external conquest. A desire, when broken down to one word, is a wish. No one has ever taught us how to desire. You can accomplish desire without practicing. Sickness and even old age do not diminish desire; they just change what we desire. To stop desiring we would have to be in a complete vegetative or meditative state, and even then we would have to desire not to desire.
A baby girl desires milk, a little girl desires acceptance, a woman desires affection and an older woman desires assistance. A baby boy desires a toy, a little boy desires a friend, a man desires a woman, and an old man desires a legacy. It does not matter our gender or our age, we all have desires. But, if our desires at age 40 are the same as our desires at age 10, then something is retarded about our desires.
Now that we are saved, our desires should be different from when we were not saved. This series will help you assess your desires and think about "Why We Want What We Want".
