1 John 2:15a Do not love the world or the things in the world.We receive a confusing challenge from our reading in 1 John today, “Do not love the world or the things in the world.” I wonder if part of the challenge comes with using the word “love.” English offers us just one word—and we use it rather indiscriminately with family members, pets, friends, and inanimate objects. I love my grandfather, and I love pimento cheese. We have a variety of ways to express care, affection, and even fondness for others.
