Non-Conformity to the World

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

Why should our poor enjoyments here
Be thought so pleasant and so dear,
And tempt our hearts astray?
Our brightest joys are fading fast,
The longest life will soon be past;
And if we go to heaven at last,
We need not wish to stay.
