I John 2:15-16

I've been already out for 10 days :(
I've been quite busy testing the steps for Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 clustering and taking care of my sick daughter. Thank God she is now well. So many people prayed for her.

Going back to my daily memory verse, I want to share this memory verse. This passage can be found in 1 John 2:15-16. The Word of God says "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."

Here, we are reminded that as Christians, we should not love the things of the world. We know for a fact that everything that is in the world is temporal and will be left here once we finally meet our God. On the succeeding verse, John enumerate the classifications of the things of the world, either it is lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, or the pride of life. These things can never please God.

So as children of God, we should always guard our desires, our motives, our plans and everything that we do. What is the reason our action? Is it for fame? for riches? for power? Will it glorify our Maker?

Let us pause for a while and plead God to help us guard our lives that in any point of time, our lives will always be acceptable in His sight!

God Bless!
