" To love Him with all your heart, with all your understanding, and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices."
God is relational. We tend to do the opposite of what Jesus said was the most important commandment. We tend to focus on sacrificial services and the burnt offerings, because it impresses others, and perhaps we feel it validates our worth to God. We must listen to our Master. If we focus on loving Him the works will come out of obedience rather than our own initiative. How much purer the sacrifice when our only motive is simply for the love of God. We will never love each other as He commands until we have first loved Him with our all. May we heed what Jesus said was the most important commandment.
In His love.
A beautiful summer sky!
