Too Seriously

Too Seriously

God has shown me how to live. It isn’t a secret. Jesus is very clear.

God has shown me what to do. Jesus has shown me what to do. I know the path. I get to choose which way to go. Will I follow Jesus?

God knows what he is looking for. God will find it in us or in others. I pray God finds it in me.

What God wants isn’t complicated. I make it complicated most days. Jesus knows it is simple. It is called love.

I must be fair and just to  my neighbor (people I live and work with). That is my daily expression of love. Be fair. Be just.

Above all, God wants me to love and be compassionate.

My goal is to take Jesus seriously. It doesn’t matter what I think.

 

But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
    what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
    be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
    take God seriously.
