It is the proof of our love and the evidence of the value we place on our relationship with Him. As you are aware, everyone is in pursuit of something. This is human nature, it is God given and there is nothing wrong with pursuit but what would be wrong would be if our pursuit undermines God: Our pursuit with God gives us eternal status in the overall scheme of things.
Making God our top priority and spending time with Him is mainly to our advantage. Those that mind God will always matter.
The above scriptures tell us how God wants us to seek after Him, wholeheartedly. No distraction, no pre-occupation should be allowed. He is either Lord of all or not Lord at all. It is remarkable to note that after we give our whole heart to God, we become able to receive His whole heart and He also gives His own quality of life in addition.
And by the way, He first gave us His all before we ever knew of Him. Not that we first loved Him, but rather, He first loved us 1 John 4: You cannot beat God at giving.
You cannot give God your whole heart when some part of it still seeks revenge, or holds someone in unforgiveness. I am not trying to condemn you, but I am showing you some hindrances to total surrender. Remember that, true love goes beyond sex attraction, passion, infatuation, external image etc. Their answer is almost always the same, from just a few weeks to a few years.
I desire them well, but I know challenging times will come and true love will be tested. You are the only one responsible to make yourself happy and stay happy.
This is what the bible says about love: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails… The secret to understand this bible verse is to apply it to yourself first, and not to your loved ones first. Your love for them and for yourself must be kind, patient, without envy, not boasting, not proud, not delighting in evil, your love does not get angered and oh, it keeps no record of wrong, always perseveres, always protects, and oh, here is one very difficult again, your love for your loved one always trusts.
Some will say, I give up, I stick to my soap opera definition of love. One ounce of conflict and the relationship is over… Next!
