Joyce Meyer's daily devotional May 16, 2016 - Love Not the World
Topic: Love Not the World [May 16, 2016]
Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. - 1 John 2:15
Many today are far too attached to the things of this world. Our society is filled to the brim with commerce—there are stores on almost every corner. And everyone is busy making money so they can buy more things. God wants His children to be blessed with nice things, but the Bible tells us not to love them excessively. It is important to keep things in their proper place.
If you use what you have to bless others, God will see to it that you have everything you need and more. So your goal should be to enjoy the things God gives you and to share with others. This shows your love for the Father.
