WHAT ARE OUR THREE BIG CRAVINGS?
Have you ever had a craving that was so strong you didn’t know what to do? Maybe the harder you tried to stay away from it, the more it drew you in.
People have said that not getting what they want is one of the most uncomfortable things that can happen to them. As they are, cravings demand to be satisfied; they demand to be taken care of. All cravings are the same, no matter if they are for food, something physical, or even an emotional need. “Something you long for, want a lot, desire a lot, and beg for” is how the dictionary defines craving. ix Given this, it’s easy to see why people can feel very uneasy when they don’t get what they want.
Think about itchy skin. When you have an itch, you have to scratch it! The more you tell yourself not to scratch it, the more you will want to. The more you try not to think about it, the more it keeps coming back to you. In the same way, our wants are like this. It is a desire you can’t just ignore. But just like scratching an itch too much can hurt the skin, giving in to a craving too much and without thinking can hurt you emotionally and spiritually.
The Bible warns us repeatedly not to satisfy our cravings in a way that goes against God. 1 John 2:16, it says that our desires for things against God come not from God but from this world. The only way to keep them under control and make sure they still please God is to understand them better and look at them.
