Monday Manna for May 18

Firstly,I'm at Exemplify this morning with my Ponderings on the Pentateuch series. I talk a bit about families (including the very first one!), and give you some ideas on Putting the Function into Dysfunctional. Don't miss it!

And now, on to the good stuff :)

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

For those of you unfamiliar, on the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse. The verse is posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be a long post -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Mr. Linky gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

This week's verse jumped out at me at Wednesday night prayer meeting. We were actually discussing the Lord being eternal (in the last chapter of 2 Peter), and my eye wandered to the next page, where I found this.
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15
How's THAT for a verse to ponder over the weekend? I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Monday. Hope to hear from you then!
