I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, I’m gonna get my piece of the pie. But do we really deserve a piece of the pie?
What is the foremost commandment in the Bible?
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” – Mark 12:25
Let’s think about pie charts. We’ve got whole, one-half, one-third, one-fourth, and so on. So what does God deserve? What part of our lives should we give to God and what part should we reserve to ourselves?
I think it’s clear. God deserves all that we have to give Him. If we are honest with ourselves, we will find that we have not committed our lives to Christ the way we should. Many times, Christians (including us) want to serve God, but also have one eye looking out for ourselves.
WE want to enjoy OURSELVES.
WE want to have fun.
WE want what WE want.
Friends, we need to stop looking our for ourselves and what we want. It’s time to change our thinking and look out for number one- the real number one. I challenge you, commit your whole self to God. Don’t hold back any part of your life. Don’t hold back.
Exercise yourself unto diligence. Forget about your piece of the pie. You will find yourself blessed in more ways than you could have imagined. God blesses those who honor Him. Won’t you put Him first in your life today?
“Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.” – Psalm 119:2
Giving God your all isn’t just in your best interest. It’s what God deserves.
