First Things First
You will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:24
I wrote yesterday about how jealousy is appropriate in certain relationships. If I desire to maintain a right relationship with God and my family, I must be radically committed to those relationships. At times I still struggle, acting selfishly, chasing the wrong things and injuring what is most important to me.
God said, in today’s passage, that I must pursue Him above all. Even apparently good things can become destructive if I pursue them for the wrong reasons or if I allow them to remove God from His place in my life. He is jealous of my attention and affection.
It has recently become apparent to me, through several voices and incidents, that I have had a blind commitment to this blog, which has caused disruption in my spiritual life and in my home life. If I believe what I write and if I am going to live what I believe, then the time has come to take a break from the blog. I must put first things first.
I am thankful for the support you have all given me and I would love to tell you if or when the blog will be back, but I do not have those answers yet. I can only say that I desire to do right and to seek God with all my heart and soul.
