Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. – Deuteronomy 6:5
We can fall prey of wanting to believe that God wants the bare minimum from us. We can fear commitment, not wanting to give God our absolute best. In this generation God is still calling us to Love him, to serve him.
He is calling us to Love him with:
Our Heart – our emotions
Our Soul – our identity, our personality, our thoughts
Our Strength to love him with everything in our being.
To love and to serve God is to choose him above our priorities in the new testament when Jesus was asked which is the greatest commandment, he pointed to love the Lord God. Mt 22: 34- 40. He is not calling us to neglect our lives and to be bad stewards of the life he has given us but rather he is calling to prioritise him and in doing so we find alignment in everything else that we do.
Today I choose to remember to love the Lord with All my heart, soul, and strength. To Walk in his was ways and to serve him
Father God when other things are calling for my commitment and priorities may I remember you as the top priority.
