Verse of the Day: 1 John 2:15
“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” – 1 John 2:15
We are not to love this world and what it has to offer. The things down here are not worth it. What does it have to offer us? Verses 16-17 answer this question. “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”
If you love the world then you truly cannot love the Father, for they are diametrically opposed to each other. So, Is the world and all its pleasures worth more than our eternal God? If so, then you will need to examine yourself prayerfully and ask why. Then take what God tells you and change your focus. You will not regret making the adjustments.
