2 Timothy 4:10 …for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica.
Dear Lord, you don’t tell us much about Demas, but enough. He was a dedicated Christian (Col. 4:14) who later deserted the faith. Why? The trappings of this world enticed him and led him astray. What a warning! Help me see when I’m having a love affair with worldly things, when things of this world have become more important than you and your will. Do all it takes to keep me from traveling down the path of Demas. Lead me to your word daily for the wisdom, guidance, and strength to resist temptation and for assistance in staying on the right path. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
