Friday Quote:

The Objects of most of our desires are not evil.  The problem is the way they tend to grow, and the control they come to exercise over our hearts.  Desires are a part of human existence, but they must be held with an open hand.  All human desire must be held in submission to a greater purpose, the desire of God for his kingdom.  This is what Christ expressed in the Garden of Gethsemane when he cried, “Not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)
