We’re easily distracted. Sometimes by our own misgivings and the rest of the time its the patterns of life pushing us to care about things that should not be a priority. Both motivations find the ability to dominate our thinking and detract us from what matters.
Was all that Jesus’ did to bring about redemption to a fallen world just so we could live routine life? If even creations groans for the day of redemption should we do the same? Have we not tasted God’s goodness enough to recognize the sourness of everything else by comparison?
From time to time we forget our first love…for the tv show, or work, or frailties. But God still loves us first.
Don’t forget why you live now, so you won’t forget who you live for.
