We adults know that we should not love the world’s system, right?
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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. I John 2:15-16
Concepts defined and lived out by the world, like entertainment, success, love, satisfaction, are antithetical to the reality we find in God’s Word.
I wonder whether we’ve thought in biblical terms what “the world” is for a child. The world’s perception of family relationships, non-family relationships, children’s entertainment are often antithetical to the reality we find in God’s Word.
I know some are attempting to counter the world’s system in their children through homeschooling, church activities, and limiting their children’s media input, but I have never heard the problem defined as loving the world. I wonder if this might change how we protect, isolate, and expose our children to the world.
