Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don't they come from your pleasures that war in your members?
You lust, and don't have. You kill, covet, and can't obtain. You fight and make war. Yet you don't have, because you don't ask.
You ask, and don't receive, because you ask amiss, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.
You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously"?
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
