The apostle John warns, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because all that is in the world (the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance produced by material possessions) is not from the Father, but is from the world. And the world is passing away with all its desires, but the person who does the will of God remains forever” (1 John 2:15-17).
This teaching concentrates on the need for believers to separate themselves from the world. What practical tips would you offer someone who is seeking to live out this message?
