What is worth your energy and time?
Do you care about what comprises the essence of “you”?
I mean what is swirling around in that head and heart of yours?
Do you base who you are, by what you do?
So what are you doing?
Do you spend time in things that will improve who you are?
Help you to make improvements in the place you call home?
How about the impact you may have on friends and family? Or are you hanging in the gutter of this world?
Only you can truly answer these questions...God already knows.
So why not trust how Jesus replied when asked, “What is the most important life principle?”
Matthew 22:37-40, "Jesus replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (NLT)
It really is simple, if I love God with a passionate intelligence that is bathed in prayer, I will then be able to love others as well as I love myself.
This means I will look to what God has to say and teach me through the bible. I then will take active steps to live by “His Standard”, treating others the way I want to be treated…with Godly love. A “God-love” that does what is right, kind, considerate, not causing anyone to stumble.
Be careful this week, what you do impacts others more than you may realize. I will try too...I agree it is not always easy, but I know the God who helps those that seek.
