Why would I resist my desires?

Now why in the world would we resist temptation? If I have a desire (of something I want), why don’t I just go get it, and fulfill my desire? Well, not all desires are healthy or good for you. In fact, a lot of the strongest desires will produce more debt in your life, more pain in your life, more poison in your life than the momentary fulfillment.

Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.

James 1:14-15 NLT
