Verse of the Day

Matthew 10:37

If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine.

Matthew 10:37

Loving God More

The Ten Commandments say, “Love your mother and father.” So if we’re supposed to love our mother and father, then why does this verse say not to love your mother and father more than you love God? Sometimes as Christians we tend to love people fiercely, so much so that it surpasses our love for God. We don’t have to stop loving someone; we just have to love God more! Our love for Him should surpass our love for anyone else.

Just imagine, if we can love God that much, then we can love people with a strong, unconditional kind of love too. Our love for people should flow out of our love for God.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your love. You are a good God and you are always loving me unconditionally. May I love others with that same kind of love. Amen.
