1 John 2:15-16

 
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. For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.
1 John 2:15-16

This verse can easily be taken out of context. I enjoy plenty of things this world has to offer that are fun to do. Some people will read the above verses and think they need to become a monk and move away to the mountains. The word love that is used here is much stronger than the word we use for love.

Think about this today: Do you love the things of this world, be it Netflix, your phone, your car, or your stuff, more than you love the Lord? Do they take more of your time and thoughts? If the answer is yes, sit down at His feet and spend that extra time with Him and let Him minister to your heart so the lusts of this world fade away, and you are overcome with the contentment of the Lord.

Resting in Him,

Pastor Sean Boehm
