Let Me Long For The Best

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  First John 2:15

Don’t send a virus to my computer because you don’t like this, after all I am just the typist.

Boy I could just see all these bugs headed to my computer because I said things are not important and you should not be concerned with them.  Now for the record that is not what I said and neither is it what God said in His Word.

In fact if I am correct God had some pretty loaded people working for Him.  How about Abraham? The man was rich. Joseph was powerful; David was good looking a great solider, and rich. How about Paul? He had a mind like a computer, maybe he was not rich but he was rich in knowledge.

Now look again at the verse. “Love” not the world.  Think about that, if you fall in love with the world you are going to be real disappointed when you die for you cannot take it with you.  It will all stay behind. God is protecting us from ourselves. It is not wrong to have things, to do well, to live nicely, and to even gather wealth for your family.  What is wrong is for you to fall in love with those things and take your heart away from Him.
