“Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
While God want’s us to love thy neighbor, our family, and our friends lets not forget what is the most important loving God. God comes before everything. It’s not wrong to love others, but to love anything before God is. Its idolatry, and guess what it’s not just your family either. Many people are avid sports fans, how many times have you been itching to see the game. How many times have you watched the game before doing devotions. It’s not just sports either, it could be work, politics, and really any facet of your life. Anything you put before God is idolatry. Its hard in the daily grind to put God into your life, but guess what He blessed you with this day. At the end of the day I believe all of us could do more to serve our Lord. It may come natural, but to be unaware of this is inexcusable. While me may be guilty of it, we can ask for forgiveness. We can cleanse ourselves, and humble ourselves before our God. No matter what we love we must love our God above all else.
