Original post May 31, 2019. We’ll never get the horizontal right (love for fellow man) until we get the vertical rght (love of God).
Revelation 2:2, 4 – “I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love.” (NIV 1978)
My Musings – Our works need to be more than merely performance and duty. They need to be motivated by love and devotion.
My Advice – Do not let your service to God become perfunctory, something you do out of duty rather than love.
