Don't Love the World

After emphasizing the importance of loving other people, John goes on to remind us that our love needs to be limited to the right things.

It appears in verses 15 and 16 of chapter two that the term "world" here means all those things that generate lust, whether power & success or bragging or adultery.

I am guilty of desiring success and recognition. How do I balance not loving the world with my drive to excel? This is an area in which I need to struggle in prayer. I will spend at least five minutes today meditating and praying through this issue.
