Do not love the world or the things in the world.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world
- the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life -
is not from the Father but is from the world.
1 John 2:15-16
I think of this one often at this time of year.
In our house we don't do "black Friday"
Instead we do Green Friday.
We walk the woods and we decorate the house with Christmas.
