Our Lord teaches us not to love the world or anything in the world. How easy that is to say, but how difficult it is to do! Love for the world and the love of the Father are mutually exclusive. Loving God above all things means recognizing that our cravings, our lust, and our pride come from this world which will not endure. God calls us Christians to love Him above all these things and to receive a life that will last forever.
