1 Peter 2:19
19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.
The call of the disciple is to love God first and to love his neighbor second. Notice how this creates only two priorities for us. The first is God and the second is people. Also, notice how there really is no provision for making ourselves a priority. Love God first and then love people. That’s it. Many ask, “what is God’s will for my life?” Love God first and then love people.
I’m going to leave this post short because I feel like this is really all there is. Sometimes in loving God and loving others I will suffer. I will be offended and my feelings will be hurt, but its not about me. It is about God first and then its about other people.
Heavenly Father, thank you God for your grace and your love. Thank you that your love for us is sufficient and perfect. Help us keep the commandments you gave to love you above all and to love our neighbors. May we honor you today. In Jesus name, Amen.
