Due to Site Q obligations at Mt. Hollywood, YHC doesn’t make it to The Sword very often but this AO is a great way to start off the week. Sparky was kind enough to give me the last minute Q and 7 PAX came out to get in a run and follow up with some discussion on how to live.


1 John 2:15-17 – “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”

John is warning us in this verse against stumbling over the temptations of the world and letting them take over our lives. When we continually stumble or struggle with something like envy or materialistic wants and desires we begin to let those thoughts and actions control our lives. Little by little, we concern ourselves more with the ways of the world than with the will of God and move farther and farther away from living the life he calls us to live. When we do this we are living for the world and not living for God.
