A comment on Lust vs. Love from a friend.

By : Jeannie Miller Weyrauch

LUST is PRIDE pursuing or demanding what the flesh wants without regard for others or the consideration of the ramifications of the pursuit or demand

It dawned on me that all lust (not just porn) is incredibly self-seeking … self-seeking is pride. When we go after pleasures that only satisfy ourselves, which don’t take into account others or the ramifications that pursuit of pleasure will have on others, that lust is pride because it is self-centered and not others focused. So contrary to God’s word: Love suffers long and is kind; love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude (love does not parade itself, is not puffed up), DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN (it does not DEMAND its own way), is not provoked, keeps no record of being wronged; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
