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
These are weighty words from the Apostle John. The exhortation is stern, and the reasoning clear. Do not love this world. Do not be devoted to the sinful passions of the flesh, the eyes, and the pride of life. These things are not of God. Do not be devoted to them, but devote yourself instead to Him!
