My love for the Father should squeeze out everything else. Wanting my own way is not the Father’s way. Wanting what He wants is the way.
What does He want? God’s goal for me is to love Him. He wants me to love everyone who is a part of my life. He wants me to love like He does.
May my love for the Father squeeze out everything else.
Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.1 John 2:15-17
