“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 The Message (MSG)
On one of our vacation trips, years ago, my daughter slugged her brother in the back seat. After “random swinging” from the driver’s seat (and not landing a hit) I presented the question. “Did you hit him with all you’ve got?!” The answer was epic, “Not with ALL I got!” The answer diffused the moment to say the least.
Unpack with me for a moment, the words presented by Moses that are considered part of the central theme of Deuteronomy. (Our focus verse above!)
What’s competing for that “space” in your heart and soul? What’s stopping you and me from loving Him with everything we have?
No matter what circumstances and situations we face, and no matter what concerns, worries or “what if’s” bombard us. Let us fight together, to love God…with all we’ve got! Amen? Amen!
Love you all!
