It is so easy to get caught up in the world. The things we can do, the things we can buy, the places we can go. So many choices, so little time. Unfortunately, as we are given more options, we struggle to “fit it all in” to our schedules. For many, the first thing to go is God.
In 1 John 2:15-17 we read, “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. 16 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. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
The more we love the world, the less love and time we have to give to God. Yes, we should all admire the beautiful creation that the Lord has made. But, more importantly, we should first love the One who created it all.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
