This world is fading away!
"Stop loving this evil world and all that it
offers you!" 1 John 2:15
Hate the world, value its treasure at a cheap
price, estimate its gems as nothing but fakes,
and its strength as nothing but dreams.
Do not think that you will lose any pleasure,
but rather remember the saying of that early
Church leader Chrysostom . . .
"Despise riches, and you will be rich;
despise glory, and you will be glorious;
despise injuries, and you will be a conqueror;
despise rest, and you will gain rest;
despise the earth, and you will gain heaven!"
"This world is fading away, along with everything
it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will
live forever!" 1 John 2:17
