After spending several hours in the service department of my car dealership, my rattling seat is now fixed. Not because it bothered me but because it irritated my husband. I feel better now, too, because I don't have to hear him complain whenever he drives my car. Sometimes we do things we don't want to do so that those we love are comforted.
This world is full of give and takes, but be careful of trying to please the world. If you've watched the news lately, you know that the world hates Christians. It loves its filthy lifestyle and feels like we should be accepting of it. I prefer to be hated than give them my approval of their debauchery. Their sick ideas are rampant throughout society, and nothing seems to stop them. It pleases me to have been chosen out of the world by Jesus, and because his Spirit lives in me, the world's excessive indulgence in sensual pleasure disturbs me and makes me cringe. You are chosen and loved; make your desire Jesus and leave the world behind.
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:18-19
