“Love can wait to give, but lust can’t wait to get.”
There is profound truth in the statement attributed to Jason Evert, a Catholic author and chastity speaker. While the best of us do not have the patient love of God the Father and have allowed lust to overwhelm our minds and hearts, there are some thoughts that deter us from making bad decisions or acting on our lustful thoughts.
Ideally, we should direct our thoughts toward what love really is. Most people talk about love being the feelings they have toward another, but when feelings go away what is left? Is it still love? Have you ever heard someone say they ‘fell out of love’?
