    Jane, this is very good and very convicting. I feel the tension between building a home of this earth and living in the reality of eternity. I really want be able say with Paul, that to live is Christ and to die is gain.

    Yes, I think “tension” is the right word to describe the pull of now against the pull of eternity. Thanks for sharing.

    One of my college professors described worldliness as essentially a lack of God. The same chapter in James that says “friendship with the world is enmity with God” also gives the illustration of making plans without any inclusion of God. As Christians we too often go about our lives without thought of God and in so doing live our lives exactly as the world does.

    I think it’s Jim Berg who defines worldliness as anything that leaves God out of the picture. I find that definition helpful in my life.
