Cravings, and Lusting and Boasting, Oh My!

1 John 2:15-17Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For everything in the world-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of the eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – The allure of the world is strong, but deceptive. Worldly things will eventually disappoint and ultimately will not last. The things of God in our life will never disappoint, and will last forever.

My Advice – Be careful of what you set your affections on. Make sure that your love of worldly things does not take the place of God in your heart.
