My mom and I were having a conversation at Applebee's. We were talking about Christmas gifts. She told me of a story about a woman who recalled how her father always bought her warm clothes and socks every Christmas and never any toys. Growing up, she constantly griped and complained that she never recieved any toys. She said that as she got older, she started to realize that her father was always thinking about what she needed. It was how he loved her.
Our father in Heaven is always thinking about what we need.
If you think about this..
Jesus is what we need. The devil is what we want.
We want the worldly things and to enjoy the pleasures of sin. Too often do we go astray from God because the devil has all of our wants and our desires. God is what we need.
Don't forget that.
