“Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.” 1 John 2:15-16 NLT
The things this world offers are empty and superficial. They are things that only last for a short time and do not really satisfy the deep longings inside.
Seek first God’s Kingdom and the eternal things that last forever. As 1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us, “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”
Lord help me to keep my eyes on the eternal things of the Kingdom. I pray I do not get caught up in the temporary things of this world. Help me to seek first the Kingdom of God. Amen
