Pick and Choose: Many of us care about our faith. We may go to Church every Sunday. We are generally good people. However, we like to pick and choose which biblical commandments we want to follow and which we don’t.
Unfortunately, this half-hearted attitude is not acceptable to the Lord. God wants all of our hearts. If we are willing to follow all commandments but have not yet succeeded because of weakness, God would be happy. As long as we are seriously trying, God shall bless our efforts.
Dear friends, the first greatest commandment is to love God with ALL your heart. He is at the center. He is a priority. Therefore, try to do your best to apply all the Lord’s commandments to your life. Those who truly love God, take all, not just part of his commandments seriously. May God bless you.
Prayer of Children:
Lord Jesus Christ, you received the children who came to you, receive also from the lips of your child this evening prayer. Shelter me under the protection of your wings that I may lie down in peace and sleep. Awaken me in due time that I may glorify you, for you alone are good and love all people.
Prayer of Adults:
Lord our God, whatever sins I have committed this day, in word deed, or thought, forgive me, for you are good and love all people. Grant me a peaceful and undisturbed sleep. Protect me from every abuse and plot of the evil one. Raise me up in due time that I may glorify you, for you are blessed, together with your only begotten Son, and your all holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
