Wednesday's Word: A Reminder on the Greatest Commandment
"But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment."
Love the Lord your God with all your heart. How does this look for a stay at home mom who is always thinking about what their babies need? Praying constantly, thanking him constantly, worshiping Him, being fed by His Word daily. This also includes teaching our children how to love God above all else. Dr. Estep preached a great sermon last week on generations. He warned parents of the dangers in honoring our children above God (referencing Eli in 1 Sam) Are we making our children our number one focus and not God?
It is so basic, we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind. So many times we get all wrapped up in issues and all upset over things that will not matter in eternity.
What are your thoughts?
