Choose God today
After a very pain-filled night, James 4:1-6 helped me to focus my heart on God for another day. In that passage, loving the world more than God is portrayed as such a serious sin that the Holy Spirit calls it spiritual adultery. Whatever good the world offers us, God is the source of infinitely more. In fact, the primary act of grace is to move us to choose God as our highest good. We should love and desire things according to their true value. Therefore, every morning we should diligently choose God as the unrivaled object of our affection and desires.
