“Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!” (Deuteronomy 6:5 MSG)
What would our inner thoughts be like if we loved God with our whole heart? I wonder if there would be room for criticism of others? I wonder if we would be more teachable or better listeners? Would we be slower to label and quicker to find common ground? Maybe the key is going back to the start and making sure it is God who is our God and not something or someone else, especially ourselves. Just some questions I am answering for myself today and thought you might want to join me. We have the daily choice of living lives consumed by the love of God. Can you think of a more exciting way to live?
