Scripture at Sunrise 6.10.09

“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.” -1 John 2:15

“In the end, the sum of all beauty is Christ, and the sin of all worldliness is to diminish our capacity to see Him and be satisfied in Him and show Him compellingly to a perishing world.”  -John Piper
