Rankin continues the series on The Eight Deadly Thoughts by talking about greed, and how our money exposes our hearts and priorities.

Rankin continues the series on "The Eight Deadly Thoughts" by talking about lust. He begins by contrasting the great value of sex, which is a life-uniting act between two people, whereas lust is a self-indulgent fantasy that separates one person from another person. He then moves into expanding on four words to help in confronting lust in our own lives: faith, friends, guardrails, and grooves.
