Psalm 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.
Mark 12:33 "And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."
How many times have you mindlessly mumbled, "I love you too," at the end of a phone call? Oh sure, you mean it, but it's just a thoughtless response. Look at Cain and Abel. Cain was great at "I love you too." He knew everything about his obligation to worship God, but he didn't have a clue about meaningful sacrifice. Abel decided, "I'm going to give you an offering that really means something to me, not because you're good, but because you're God."
Sometimes like Cain, however, my love gets empty. It's time to worship, and so I do what I always do, I bring Him this tiny offering of what’ left of me.
What if I initiate the dialogue today? What if my adoration becomes more
than a spiritual reflex? What if, just this once, I didn't need a miracle
to motivate me into worshipping Him?
