“Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. (Matthew 22:37-38 NLT)
Loving God is our main priority. Loving Him with all of our being – heart, soul and mind – is the greatest commandment.
Before anything else our love for God must come first if we are truly to fulfil God’s desires for us. Everything else we do flows from this. It is our foundation for life.
In Revelation 2:4 we see God said to the church in Ephesus that they had lost their first love for Him and each other. He was pleased with the other things they did, but that was the “charge” against them.
Today let us remember to have the right foundation for our lives. If it is not built on loving God first, then we are missing the mark on the first and greatest commandment.
