Did I love God first?
Or did he love me first?
As I read the words Moses said to the Israelites in one of his last addresses to them before his death, I am challenged to evaluate how well I love God.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and will all your soul and with all your strength.”
What would it feel like if I loved God with all my heart? What do I need to change so I can love God with all my soul? What would my life be like if I loved God with all my strength?
How can I ignore the distractions of this world and the strong desire to do what I want to do so I can love God first?
I am God’s child and he is my Perfect Father. I know he wants me to love him more and love him better than I do now. As long as I seek him first, he will show me the way.
I’m following you, Abba Father. Thank you.
