The thee of today’s lessons is “lust,” what Proverbs calls one of the “seven deadly sins.” The only way we can conquer this deadly sin and all its consequences is that we love something or someone more, and that Someone is the Lord Jesus.

It is easy to find fault with anyone or any institution, including the Lord’s church (the human element). May we love the church with all our being, remembering what is good, great and right about the church, that Jesus loved so much He gave His life for her.
