“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandments.”
Do you ever wonder what is really important in life? Do you ever ask yourself? After all, the world is filled with so much distractions. Especially in advertisements, people telling you to get skinny, wear this, or listen to that. Put things in perspective. What ever you have placed as the most important thing in your life is probably not. It is hard for you to believe that anything could be more important than what your friends think or being popular.
Well it is, these verses lay out that nothing should be more important to you than loving God completely. No one is saying that your friends don’t matter, but keep them in perspective. When you love God with all your heart, soul and mind nothing will come before Him. Not, your friends, parents, boyfriend, girlfriend, game console, or even a celebrity. Is not more important than God!!
Be strong, courageous, and live in God’s word.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving us this new day. For giving us your daily bread, and everlasting water. Father, I ask that you will forgive us for putting man before you. May your Holy name reign forever in our world. Amen.
