Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.

– 1 John 2:15 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

John reminds us that there is a conflict between the love of the Father and the love of the world. We can get so caught up in our daily routines that we drift farther and deeper into a love affair with the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the boastful pride of life. If we find ourselves in this situation, our first response may be to change some behaviors, but John is telling us that we need to return to our first love. When the love of the Father is in us, the love for the world loses its grip on us.
