Hidden Treasures: The Love of the World vs The Love of the Father

1 John 2:15-17 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.
For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.
And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Basically, everything that man counts as important...his physical desires, the things he wants and being seen as great in the eyes of others is all passing away.  It is meaningless in the whole scheme of things.  Only doing the will of God matters.
