There’s something different — something richer — about a relationship where the only reason somebody spends time with you is because they want to, not because they’re required to.
That’s why aging parents love it when their adult children break away from their busy lives to spend a few days with Mom and Dad.
Not in order to pick up a check but in order to make cherished memories.
We love such times.
God is a Daddy and He loves such times, too.
It’s very meaningful to Him when we break away from our busy lives and — by our own desire to show Him our love — we set aside time to fellowship with Him, to pray to Him, to worship Him and to be guided or even transformed by Him.
We aren’t to attend worship or place our tithes and other offerings in the plate because we think God needs it to survive.
He doesn’t. He already has countless angels and souls loving and exalting Him in heaven.
Instead, we worship and serve and give in order that WE might survive spiritually and thrive emotionally.
Here’s a verse from today’s reading in the One-Year Bible that reminded me of how God is SO much greater than we and how blessed we are to have a God that cares BY CHOICE.
“… human hands can’t serve His needs — for He has no needs.” (Acts 17:25)
And one of those “wants” is the love and loyalty of your heart.
This being the case, please link your need for salvation and fellowship with God and His want for fellowship with you.
It’s the desire of His heart.
As always, I love you
