The lust of the eyes…comes not from the Father.
1 John 2:16
Lust is the result of a lack of love for God. The lust of the eyes is the desire to acquire things we visualize as valuable. Satan used the lust of the eyes as an avenue of temptation for Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:6). The enemy also used visual images in an attempt to entrap Jesus (Matt. 4:8). How do you respond when faced with lust? Jesus did not succumb but responded with Scripture. We must follow the example of Christ and live with a greater faith over lust. Instead of looking to the world for value, we must look to Jesus.
Pray to see Jesus in all things.
