Maybe we're not lusting after something we don't have, but something we wish we didn't.
It was one of those thoughts that crept into my mind as I was driving in my car and heading nowhere in particular. I tend to do that. Put the car in drive, turn on the radio and get to where I'm going without much recollection of actually getting there. Perhaps it's because I've been too preoccupied lately with what life has dealt or maybe it's because I'm too preoccupied with trying to forget what life has dealt.
Lust is defined many ways, including: to yearn, crave or hunger for. As I mulled that thought over in my head, I wondered if we can lust, crave, or hunger for something we have to go away. An problem, a situation, maybe even a person or a habit. If we strongly desire something out of our lives does that constitute some form of lust?
