As the people of God, we must be careful that we do not make “things” our God. Let me be clear – “things” are nice to have, but we must remember that all we have comes from God. Consequently, we cannot love the “things” more than we love God, the giver of every good and perfect “thing.” Don’t get hung up on “things” because they are only temporary. Our focus should always be on God. Some of us have allowed “things” to become our focal point, causing ungodly behaviors, such as robbing and stealing to get them. In those instances, have lost sight of what is important — we need to learn to be grateful for what God has given us and not allow “things” to become our God. In 1 John 2:15, we find these words:

“Do not love this world nor the things in it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.”

The writer speaks clearly about not getting hung up on “things.” In verses 16 and 17 he advises that the world offers temporary pleasures.  He also advises that the people should not take so much pride in achievements and possessions because they blot out the power and love of God. He is writing to those who are young in the faith because he does not want them to be misguided by “things.” When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Prayerfully, we will all put God first in our lives, and we won’t allow ourselves to get hung up on “things.”
