Unless there is within us, that which is above us, we will soon yield to what is around us.
It is a hard matter to enjoy the world without being entangled with the cares and pleasures of it.
When our back is to the breathtaking beauty of God, we cast a shadow on the earth and fall in love with it.
The world can pull us into its grip. If we are not careful, Christians can allow the world to dictate our causes and our beliefs and our attitudes. We can easily get squeezed into its mold and while we intend well, the powerhouse of our actions becomes feelings, experiences or whatever is currently trending.
