- Who do you love in your life?
- Is there a degree to how much you love people? (Meaning, do you love some more than others?)
- How can you make God the most important love of your life?
Reading: Deuteronomy 6: 4-9
Think of the person whom you love the most in your life. It could be a spouse, child, parent, or friend. You undoubtedly have very strong feelings for that person. Love is a very strong emotion. You may feel you love that individual with all your heart.
How much do you love God? Scripture tells us that we should love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our might. Therefore, we should show more love to God than to any other person on earth. God should be our top priority.
It's tough to always think of God first. We are human and sometimes our human tendencies tend to have us put ourselves and others ahead of God. But we should make God our top priority. Without God, we could not do anything. Without God, we would not have the loves of our lives with whom we have strong feelings.
Is God number one in your life? If not, shouldn't God be? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
