We are starting a Bible study at church called 40 Days of Love. It is more than a Bible study. It is intended to be a catalyst of change. It centers on relationships and communication. The relationship principles of Jesus will be what we are studying.
Today in church, our pastor asked us to finish this statement:
My #1 Goal in Life is ……………………
Would you say your goal is:
- To be happy
- To raise a family
- To have fun
- To retire
- To be successful
- To be comfortable in life
- To be liked by people
- To be different
You get the picture. The answer to that question becomes your Dominant Life Principle. It establishes itself as the core reason or initiator of what you do in life. It dominates your life and in many ways defines you.
1 Corinthians 14:1 says “Let love be your greatest aim.”
God is love so therefore he created us to express love because we are made in His image. Our time on this world is our chance to learn how to love each other. And remember, it is easy to love our friends. It is a different story with those who are different or difficult.
Mark 12:30-31 teaches us to Love God and Love Man, If our vertical relationship with God is not what it should be then our horizontal relationships with each other will also be skewed.
My pastor used this analogy today:
Your love can’t flow like a river if it is being filled with a thimble.
Think About It…….
