Don’t Love The World’s Ways

Verse 4 2day logo blog

1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

The Message (MSG)

15-17 Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.

  1. I so appreciate your quotes for the day– they always strike home with me. Thank you and bless you!!

  2. We are “in” the world, but we are not to be “of” the world. It is so hard to not get caught up with the ways of the world. By staying close to the LORD and daily seeking Him through His word, we are able to live for Him and not the world. Thanks for this awesome verse!

  3. A great reminder, these verses should be read every morning haha!

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
