Galatians Chapter 5 warns us against the battle against our flesh and our spirits…
Galatians 5:17 (NKJV)
17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
God gave us our sexual desires and even perfectly regulated them to encourage long, satisfying marriages (check out this link)…
However, it’s not His fault if we allow our lusts to pervert our natural, God-given sexual attractions. We cannot trust our flesh. Lust can have us doing some crazy things if we aren’t careful.
It certainly got King David caught up…
2 Samuel 11:2 (NKJV)
2 Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.
Think about this.
Why are so many people attracted to what is, at times, the nastiest part of the body.
One of the first things that many men and women are attracted to is the butt, booty, behind, derriere, bum, a**, so much so that even countless songs have been written about it…
They are splattered all over television, the internet, magazines, flaunted in public, ‘butt’ that’s because people are so attracted to it.
So, if your flesh is trying to get the best of you through intently checking out someone else’s, (especially other than your spouse’s) rump, think about the fact that even though it might look good, it’s a good chance it might not smell good.
God has a way or reminding us that our flesh is corrupt and, we will return to the dust of the earth. No matter how much you wash, as you go about your day, a butt will be a butt.
Be careful, don’t let your lusts make a donkey out of you:-)
