1 John 2:15
“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
Father, we ask you to help your disciples not to love the things of this world. Fill their hearts with an affection for you that overcomes the pull of the world around them. Keep them from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
