Pursuing whatever we desire is not what is best for the world. (James Emory White, pastor)
White goes on; “What is best for the world is when we submit our desires to what is best for the world. We’re often pretty selfish about the things we want. For our own comfort or benefit, we wish certain things could change. But those changes might not be good for everyone else.” White is right. We can be content when what we want is what is really good for everyone, including us.
Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desire. … You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. (1 Peter 1:14; 4:2).
