Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17(NIV)
Being the kind of person I am, things like new technology can cause me to not focus on the right things. Take the iPad 2 or any new digital device; these types of things really hit my desires. Did you know this passage is the devil’s formula for getting into your life? If you find a story in the bible or look at your life, you will see that the devil always attacks the same way. He moves on the lust of the flesh and eyes, and the pride of life. Think about it.
If you know the devil’s formula for his attack, can you be better prepared to deal with it? Do you agree this is his formula? How can you prepare to not love the world but rather the creator of everything?
