15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

1 John 2:15-16

Many Christians have left their first love as described in the book of Revelation. Many are neither hot nor cold; they are lukewarm concerning the things of God, needing nothing from Him. We must guard against being easily entertained. Many church goers want short messages that bring good feelings instead of conviction that will drive us to our knees.

The enticement for many is this idea of worldliness; seeking things that the world offers. There are certain elements of daily life which are not sinful in themselves but they have a tendency to lead to sin. Daily activities like what we read, how we dress and what we watch can be helpful, but if abused these things can bring about sin and cause havoc in our lives. Thought, about the necessities of life and taking care of your family, is absolutely essential, but this can easily degenerate into anxiety, and then, as Christ reminds us it can choke the seed of truth in the heart.
