There is a right way and a wrong way to love the world. If your deepest attachment is to this life—this fallen world with its values—then you will make no sense of the Christian message to die to self and follow Christ. Things need to be loved in their right proportion. Money is most useful, but the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil (1 Tim. 6:10); clothes are fine, but too deep an attachment to the whims of fashion is not; sport can be healthy, but too ardent a devotion to it is spiritually unhealthy; work is a necessary thing, but man cannot live by work alone. We are not to set our hearts on this world.
