Do Not Love the Things in This World

If you love the world, then you don't love Me... and nothing you earn or gain from this world can be taken with you when this life ends.

1 John 2:15
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.

The world will trap you if you give it the chance. It pushes and stimulates you so that you feel the need for things when they aren’t necessary. The world will push you to strive for more, more money, more work which means longer hours and more responsibilities. You are spending less time on the eternal and more time on the superficial, and for what end? Time is precious and you will be accountable to Me with how you spend it. Are you taking the time to show love to a neighbor? Are you instilling words of life and quality time with your loved ones? Have you reached out to the one that just needed a prayer and a smile from you? Do you even notice the opportunities around you?

Moments come and go. The most expensive gift you could ever give someone is the gift of your time. There is no price tag and it seems so simple… so why is it so difficult? Start adjusting your priorities… seek Me first and I will help put order to your life. After all, if you love the world, then you don’t love Me… and nothing you earn or gain from this world can be taken with you when this life ends.
