Son, You Keep Teaching Mommy
You see, in the scriptures it reads: 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. 1John 2:15-16 (KJV)
The wise advice given in 1John is so true. When we get caught up in all the world offers in the way of materialistic things, and what the world says will make us happy, we have this void. I've felt it, and I'm sure that many of you out there have too. It's as though something vital is missing, and no amount of stuff you buy will make that void disappear. How many of you have gone and bought some particular item that you were so excited to get, and then find yourself either not using it within days/weeks/months, OR you just lose interest in it? That's because the things of this world will never fill that void. Only He fills that void!
