Loving God

Today as I ponder loving God, I am lead to a sentence in a book where the author says, ” I really only love God as much as I love the person I love the least.”  What a powerful idea!  Isaiah 30:20-21 states, “Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them.  Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

Often, those teachers are those we love the least, but then I think about that priceless pearl that begins as  an irritant.  Once again, I realize lessons become blessings when understood.
