Verse of the Week - 1 John 2:15-17 (The Message)

1 John 2:15-17 The Message (MSG)

15-17 Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.

Join me this week?!  This is the Bible verse I have on a index card that I carry around in my purse.  My hope is a few times instead of picking up my phone to scroll social media I will pick up this verse and write it on my heart.  There is so much more life in God's word than any other place I tend to go.  More of the Father and less of the world is my prayer this week!  I do not want anything of this world to squeeze out love for my Heavenly Father.  Join me!

Happy Veterans Day!  To my brother Will, Dad, Uncle Frankie and Uncle Jimmy, cousin Jonny and Marty, granddaddy, and all the brothers and sisters who have fought for this country - We honor you and THANK YOU for your service to this country and its people!  You are true American heroes!

Love Mary
