Desire

1 Desiring what does not belong to you is wrongful desire and is related to greed. Wrongful desires can lead to wrong actions.

2 Sometimes you do not receive what you want. Sometimes what you do not receive is what you actually need.*
*(Sometimes a person will make a request in their prayers for a material object, money or something to happen to someone else – however, the Living Spirit always knows best; thus, sometimes a person’s petitions will not be answered in the manner the individual wished – and if he or she does not receive an answer, then patience was what the person needed all along.)

3 Due to their material desires some people can not see a true gift even when it is right in front of their eyes.

4 I do not teach against desires; I teach against desires that lead one to sin. (TMI 19)
