1 John 2:15-16
New Living Translation (NLT)
Do Not Love This World
15 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. 16 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.
What if the world was different?
What if we stopped and looked around?
Could we put an end to war?
Could peace somehow be found?
Could children all be tucked in bed?
Could their stomachs all be filled?
Might we take care of the elderly?
Might our debt to them be fulfilled?
Maybe we could build relationships?
Maybe we could change our hearts?
Maybe we could learn to listen?
Maybe we could love impart?
Could we make the world a different place?
Could we give up what we desire?
If we turned loose of this old world?
Is that all that it would require?
