Seven Day Scriptures: Day 3

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life- is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” – 1 John 2:15-17 NKJV

It’s so easy for one to get wrapped in the fruits of this world- from entertainment to social media One thing that reminds me to not get sucked up in it is that the fruits of this world offer only a temporary thrill. Indulge yourself a couple times and you end up feeling empty or miserable after. But Christ offers you food that has you feeling good about yourself or at least desiring you to be better than who you were years ago, months ago, days ago, or a couple minutes ago. Another mechanism I use is to ask myself myself, “ How much time have I made for Christ today? Are my hobbies and labors getting all of my time?”


By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
