Some people love money over everything else, while other’s love power most. It is very important to know that all good things come from the Lord above as the Bible tells us and that material things can be here today and gone tomorrow without warning. Loving the Lord and having faith in God is the best decision that a person can make. When you make this decision, you know that nothing on this earth matters above God and that HE is the source of our needs, especially love.
The bible shows us different acts of love by giving, and one of the first examples is from Genesis with Abraham and his son. Abraham prayed for his son and loved him so much but he loved God first and obeyed God when he was told to take the son to be sacrificed back to the lord. God saw Abraham’s obedience and love for him so he stopped Abraham before he killed his son and provided another sacrifice.
“And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of” Genesis 22: 2.
Can you imagine giving up something so valuable? Something that you have prayed for, for so long, just to be told to give back or to kill it? Abraham showed lots of love with his actions. His obedience and love for God allowed his son to be saved. Abraham realized that God gave him and his wife their son and that the child was Gods.
I encourage you to love and appreciate all that God has allowed you to be a steward over while hear on earth. Remember that He is the source of everything and wants you to show your love through giving and your actions of faith.
How can you show God that he is the most important in your life?
