Such a great verse I read while
browsing through my bible perusing on Facebook before bed tonight (a friend had this as her status — Mark Zuckerberg is spreading the gospel!!!). I think it’s easy to get wrapped up in material items and secular things that bring us brief joy — trust me, I know I can get pretty thrilled with Award Shows, or when my team is winning, or when my bank account looks like I could make it rain all night long (rarely) — especially as newbies in the adult world. But those things won’t be around for the long haul. That’s why you should measure your life in love, right? Holler. On another note, this whole paragraph reminds me of The Social Network… oh the irony.
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
I’m going to go read my
bibe bible bibe (I like the abbreved version, even if it was just a typo) now because something is just wrong with that whole first paragraph.
