“What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask.
“You ask and do not receive because you ask with the wrong motives so that you may spend it on your pleasures.”
“You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
Or do you not think that the scripture speaks at no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He made to dwell in us.”
God is opposed to the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit therefore to God, Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands of sin and purify your hearts and stop being double-minded.
The source of all your troubles is your fleshly desires and arrogant attitude being self willed and not loving people and your neighbor as yourself. Every conflict you have can be traced back to self, think about it, meditate upon examining yourself change your ways and you will see with your heart and not your eyes. Keep Jesus first and foremost in all you do, in all your thoughts and you will not sin but have peace within. In this world you will have trouble but take heart, Jesus has overcome the world, abide and stay close to Him, He loves you so much but you must do your part…..
