What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires…? James 4:1
“I want what I want when I want it.” According to the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, this is a central driving force within every single human being.
We want what we want when we want it, and we get upset when we can’t have what we want—or we envy others who have what we want.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we have to learn to ask God what he wants for us. We need to learn to say, “I want what God wants,” instead of saying, “I want what I want.”
Take a close look at your life, family, home, or work situation and ask, “Why are we fighting and quarreling? And what do we need to do to make the changes that will keep us from fighting?” I hope you can join us as we continue our study through the book of James and look at what it says about conflict, the pathway to peace, and “Curing My ‘I’ Problem.”
