If I Loved the World!


Do not love the world or the things that belong to the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.

I John 2:15

If you loved the world how would your life be different from the way you live it now?

If a man does not love his wife how is his life different from the man who loves his wife?  The answer to that question is very apparent.  A man who loves his wife spends time with her and spends his resources trying to please her.  He puts her needs above his own.

It is a good thing to love your wife, but it is not a good thing to love the world.  When you love the world you spend your time and resources trying to please the world.  You focus on the world and live your life so that you will be honored by the world.

Never forget that you can't love the world and God at the same time.   You will hate one if you love the other.  Don't just listen to what you say about loving God, look carefully at what you do.
