Who’s First?

(Matthew 10:28-42) With today’s devotional passage being almost identical to yesterdays, it would seem that I there is even more emphasis needed on putting God before all things. I can easily see how it would be easy to put someone you care for above God. It is layed out very clearly in the Scripture that the importance of those in your life is to begin with God, then you spouse, then your family, then others and the church. There is a devine reason for this that causes a trickle down effect, really an overflowing of God’s love on down. This is my desire that I should have such a close relationship with God that His love will flow from me out to those around me!
