Do not love the world or anything in the world.If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. For everything in the world~ the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does~ comes not from the father but from the world.The world and it's desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forver! 1 John 2:15-17
The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost:
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
and sorry could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
and having perhaps the better claim,
because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence;
Two roads diverged in a woods and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Whoever wants to be great amongst you must be your servant,
and whoever wants to be first must be slave to all.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless,
Christ died for the ungodly.
