"Love not the world neither the things that are in the world,for if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." says the Bible.(Not copied word for word) I believe the Bible is written in a way that is quite confusing and cannot be really understood unless it revealed by the power of the Holy Spirit. In this verse that I'm still digesting ,I feel that what is being referred to is loving things in a way that implies that they are the end goal or the product to be striven for,The Important Point. Which they are not, in the whole and splendid scheme of things. But I feel at this point, that things can have a God honoring purpose if used to bless our fellow man and ultimately to bring Glory to our Father. It is a state of heart,a certain spirit we wish to avoid pertaining to things. And last but not least, we need to pray for God's leading on how we use the resources of time and materials He blesses us with.
This month, especially in this time of tension as a nation and with all the gloom and doom being spread on the news, I'd like to focus on positive notes and nurturing moments of home and one another. Life is uncertain,things happen that seem scary,but God is faithful and He gives us confidence to be trusting and thankful in each day and bless one another with Love in many forms!
Celebrate Love!
