So often I forget how big God really is. I also too often make life so much more complex than it should be by getting caught up in the things that so easily hinder and entangle me and scream for my attention to be on it rather than God.
We sang in campus church this morning at LU a song that is so simple, but has come to mean so much to me. It simply says:
But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight,' says the Lord."
"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. 'The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself. 'There is no commandment greater than these."
