Do not love the world or the things in the world. If you love the world, the love of the Father is not in you. ~1John 2:15~

My Dearest Child,

>Do you ever comparison shop to see which store is offering the best value? Today I want you to compare what the world is offering to what I’m offering. The choice is yours.

The world holds out happiness that depends on circumstances. I hold out joy. The world holds out self-serving motives and hidden agendas. I offer unconditional love. The world holds out blame and shame and condemnation. I hold out forgiveness and a new beginning. The world holds out addictions, compulsions, and momentary gratification. I fill you with peace that passes understanding. The world offers broken vows and contracts. I give you my Word, which never changes. The world offers a sad imitation of life.

I Am Life,
