Sometimes your eyes are bigger than your stomach, unable to eat everything that you put on your plate. In the same manner, when individuals open their mouths, empty vows spoken without any action leave a trail of broken promises. This is not the standard Jesus set for his disciples. Rather, he challenged his followers to be all in, not just when they feel like it.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength, Mark 12:30.
Based upon the interpretations of modern poets, song writers and the world, love is a feeling. Worldly love changes from one day to the next, something that you can lose over time. However, a biblical love is a willful desire, which requires everything you have. While you may experience periods of fatigue, not 100 %, faith inspires the weak to dig down deep with all your heart, soul and mind.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me, 2 Corinthians 12:9.
