Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-One
Read: Matthew 22:34-40
Think: Jesus summed up the whole Bible in two sentences: Love God with your everything, and love people the way you want to be loved. How do you love God with your mind, your heart, and your soul? Which is the most lacking in your life? What do you think it looks like to love your neighbor as yourself? How is God convicting you through this passage right now?
Pray: God, I don’t want to just know things about you; I want to really know you and love you with my everything. As a result of loving you, let your love spill over onto everyone I come in contact with. Take away my selfishness and let me pour out to others the blessings I want for myself.
Apply: Think of one tangible way you normally would “treat yourself” and, instead, do it for a complete stranger. Make a list of five people you would like to invite to church on Easter Sunday.
