1 John 2:15-17New 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. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
Dear Father, I will not love this world. I will not love the things this world has to offer. I want to love of my Father in me. The world has only craving for things, achievements, and possessions. May I crave my relationship with God. May I crave building up my treasure in Heaven where it will never be destroyed. This world is fading. It is like a vapor in the wind. May I strive to do what is pleasing to God, for I know when I do, I will live with God forever. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
