The word for today is desire. What is desire? A desire is a wish or a longing for something or a particular outcome. Some desires are so strong that they ache and they move you to action. I think God loves such desires. I believe God is interested in passionate people. The scriptures say ‘I wish you were hot or cold but because you are lukewarm I’ll spit you out of my mouth.
A strong desire causes you to pursue the object of your desire. Mike Murdock says pursuit is the proof of desire.
The desire of a lazy man kills him for his hands refuse to labor. Prov 21:25
The soul of a lazy man desires and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich. Prov 13:4
Laziness is the lack of desire to expend effort; it is disinclination to work or activity.
Diligence is defined as determination, careful and persistent effort. So desire without careful and persistent effort is capable of killing someone.
