Do you find at Christmas and New Years it’s kinda ok to really want stuff without seeming selfish? Really? John has something to say about that:
‘Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world – wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important – has nothing to do with the Father.’ 1 John 2v15-16 [The Message].
As you squeeze the toothpaste tube today, ask God to show you what might be squeezing his love out of you. Show them to God – and ask for God’s presence to fill you instead.
