What Do You Want?

Humans are emotional beings. As this is the case, we want things – we don’t just have an instinctual magnetism towards certain things, we truly desire them.

Stay with us as we try to truly understand human “coveting” and the role it plays – or doesn’t play - in our Christian lives.
