16 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. (1 John 2:16 NIV)
The world is a wonderful and fascinating place. A place built for us to enjoy, cultivate, explore, build upon and sustain us. This was the original plan. But man took that plan and through greed, lust and pride took the good things of the world and made the creation more valuable than the creator.
There is more than enough for those in the world, that was the creators plan. But we have traded that plan for our own.
