Daily Devotion: It's You I Love

Bible Reading: Deuteronomy 6:1-15

Key Verse: Verses 5 - "And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."

Key Words: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart

How many times have we heard someone say they love the Lord, but their action and attitude reveal otherwise? We often put God and the things of God on the back burner while saying with our mouth, “Lord, I love You.”

A pastor I know was driving to work one morning when he bumped fenders with another motorist. Both cars stopped, and the woman driving the other car got out to survey the damage.

She was distraught. It was her fault, she admitted, and hers was a new car, less than two days from the showroom. She dreaded facing her husband.

The pastor was sympathetic; but he had to pursue the exchange of license and registration data. She reached into her glove compartment to retrieve the documents in an envelope.

On the first paper to tumble out, written in her husband’s distinctive hand, were these words: “In case of accident, remember, Honey, it’s you I love, not the car.”

Now, let me ask you: can you honestly say that during both the good and bad times, “Lord, it’s You I love, not things”?

What to do:
✞ Love God with all your heart.
