Devotional

March 14, 2013

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22: 37, 39

This scripture sums up life. First, love God with all we are and second, love our neighbor as ourselves. I think we come up short on the second command to love others as ourselves when we don’t trust in the love that God has for us. We love God and put Him first in our lives in as much as we accept and trust His love for us. The better we grasp that, the freer we are to love others.

When I am sure of God’s love for me, I become filled with peace and gratitude. Awareness of His great love gives me the freedom to treat others with kindness, patience, and generosity. I truly want them to accept the love that God has for them, along with all the blessings that come with that acceptance. Jealousy, resentment, hurt, and fear have no place in my relationships with others.

When I start to feel or act unloving to another, it is because I have refused to recognize and accept God’s great love for me. To hold hardness in my heart toward another means I have lost awareness of my place in God’s heart.

Therefore, it is most important that I continually strive to love God, to accept God, and to appreciate His love for me; so that in turn, I will grow in love for my neighbor.

And on the 9th day, after God made a farmer, God looked down on his planned paradise and needed someone to show off His prized creations. So God made a Stock Show Kid... we are sooooooooo proud of all!
