The Main Thing...

Every day for the past several months I have prayed for dear friends and family members who are enduring serious trials, illnesses or burdens.  In each instance I've been reminded that taking my concerns to the Father is a precious privilege, and at the same time, these situations have served to remind me that this life boils down to one big main thing: Love. 

Words are not minced in Matthew 22...37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 

I want to love God with all my heart, soul, and mind--but do I?  Really?  And how does my life reflect it if I do?

And what about my neighbor? 

The truth is--I have a long way to go.  But with all my heart, soul, and mind, I don't want to miss the main thing.  And as best as I can tell, the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

Help me Lord! I see--I know--I believe--that the main thing is love, and I don't want to miss it.
