1 John 2:15
V 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him
If asked this question I’m satisfied that the majority of “Christians” would say that they absolutely did not love the things of this world. But really that’s a lie, right…I mean we all do. We all want things; we want better cars or bigger houses or great outfits. We do and what’s more important we know it, even if we never admit it. Instead of denying what we know to be true, we should be trying to minimize the love. We should be always watchful that our love for the world never exceeds our love for the things of God. That we never allow anything to take precedence over God’s Will for our lives. We need to live lives that show others it is possible to not allow our love for the world to control us because it will, if we allow it. Take a look at what takes up the majority of your time, look at what you talk to your children about this will show you where your love is. Like Paul urged us to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith; we must examine ourselves to see if our love for the world is out of control.
