Do not love the world or the things in the world. 1 John 2:15

Christians are warned not to love the world--but what is worldliness? Some have misunderstood it.

Worldliness is an attitude, a spirit, an atmosphere that permeates the whole of human society. It is an attitude that puts self first and ignores God and His commandments. Its horizon is this present world and it never gives thought to God or to eternity. It exhibits itself in a thousand different ways--in habits, in selfish pleasures, in a grasping for material things, in driving ambition, in exulting oneself at the expense of others.

We must avoid everything God has labeled sinful; of that there can be no doubt. But some elements of daily life aren't necessarily sinful in themselves; they only become sinful if they are abused. Pleasure isn't always wrong--unless it's abused. Ambition is an essential part of true character--but if abused it can destroy us.

Be on guard. lest a spirit of worldliness creep into your life. The Bible warns, "Do not love the world or the things in the world".

Insight: Our "default" is worldliness...but this default should be "reset" to this value: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

Dear Lord, I am guilty of loving the things of this world more than You. I am guilty of seeking worldly things at the expense of others. Please forgive me and help me to seek first Your kingdom. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

That makes two of us Bob. Putting God first is all you have to do and the rest takes care of itself. A nice way to put your life on cruise control with God doing the driving. Smile
