What is “Fleshly Desire” in the Bible

“To be subject to the flesh’s desire is to judge everything by purely material standards. It is to live life dominated by the senses. It is to be gluttonous in food; [overindulgent] in luxury; slavish in pleasure; lustful and lax in morals; selfish in the use of possessions;… extravagant in the gratification of material desires. The flesh’s desire [disregards] the commandments of God, the judgment of God, the standards of God and the very existence of God.” -William Barclay
