When the most important thing isn’t your most important thing, then you haven’t got a thing. That’s the convoluted but pertinent thought that came into my mind as I was contemplating what to do next on a recent day. The reality is God is everything to us or He is nothing at all. There is no part-time God. There is only one God, and He demands our full attention and our full devotion.
In return, we get all of Him. It’s a no-lose proposition. And yet every day we live our lives as if we don’t want the deal. We want God sometimes, but living our lives in complete devotion means surrendering too much of our selfish desires. We don’t want to let go, even though we know what we are getting in return is so much better.
