How Spiritual Laziness Leads to Lust

It’s not just physical laziness, but spiritual laziness that leads to lust.

One of the most common pieces advice given to ward off lust is to stay busy, but sometimes that isn’t enough.

Bobby Angel points out that we can be very busy while being inattentive to God, and it is this spiritual laziness that often leads to lust.

For those who are struggling with lust, Bobby suggests that they ask God for the grace to care more about spiritual matters.

In fact, we all can benefit from that advice, while asking God what he wants us to be attentive to.

“Those who find no joy in spiritual pleasures turn to the pleasures of the body.” 

St. Thomas Aquinas
