I was curious about the love of money – more importantly, the fact that some can afford excessive luxuries and seem to take that for granted. Almost everyone wants something they don’t have. It seems like the more money a person has, the more unnecessary things they not only want but actually possess (in number, price, or size).
1 John 2:16 says, “Everything that is in the world—the craving for whatever the body feels, the craving for whatever the eyes see and the arrogant pride in one’s possessions—is not of the Father but is of the world.”
 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.
The desire of the flesh — Of the pleasure of the outward senses, whether of the taste, smell, or touch.
The desire of the eye — Of the pleasures of imagination, to which the eye chiefly is subservient; of that internal sense whereby we relish whatever is grand, new, or beautiful.
The pride of life — All that pomp in clothes, houses, furniture, equipage, manner of living, which generally procure honour from the bulk of mankind, and so gratify pride and vanity. It therefore directly includes the desire of praise, and, remotely, covetousness. All these desires are not from God, but from the prince of this world.
