Do Not Love the World
v Do not love the world or the things in the world. w If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world - the lust of the flesh, x the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life - is not of the Father but is of the world.
And y the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
He who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver; Nor he who loves abundance, with increase. This also is vanity.
When goods increase, They increase who eat them; So what profit have the owners Except to see them with their eyes?
1 Corinthians 7:31
And those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away.
1 Peter 1:24
Because "All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away.
