Love Not The World

Where one thousand are destroyed by the world's frowns, ten thousand are destroyed by its smiles!

A little of this world will serve a man who is strong in grace.  Much of this world will serve a man who is weak in grace.  But nothing will serve a man who is void of grace!

[Thomas Brooks]


James 2:5 ... Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
John 12:25 ... He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

1 John 2:15-17 ...  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. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
