You have no idea what God can do and desires to do with your life when you are completely surrendered to Him.
Appetites (and/or feelings)
-These are things that can ruin our lives and make us miserable, if they are not ultimately surrendered to God
-They can become gods/idols in our lives that we give our affection + energy to
-You will either be ruled by them or you’ll rule over them by loving obedience to God
3 Things I Want You to Know About Appetites
1. God created appetites, but sin distorted them
2. Appetites are never fully & finally satisfied
3. Your appetites always scream NOW and never LATER
Who in their right mind would trade their birthright for a bowl of stew?
Never underestimate the significance of even the smallest act of obedience — or disobedience.
“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good (I add obedient) act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger (or name any other appetite) today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible.” -C.S. Lewis
Genesis 25:34
Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So, Esau despised his birthright.
