God’s first commandment to mankind tells us to love and serve him alone. The reason as to why it is the first commandment, is because it is the most important to man.
The saying that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, should be highly considered by young people, so as to grow up in love and faith, because it is what our God wants us to do.
Children are like angels on earth, and if they love one God with all their hearts, even in haven they will be seen and handled as angels or princes and princesses in the kingdom of Our Father.
We have heard of people who warship more than one God, and this is done at times mistakenly by worshiping idles, for instance ancestral spirits, people, monuments or other things that might take God’s first place in our hearts.
The love that the world teaches is unreal and in most cases impure, with jalousies, hypocrisy, disappointments, and it commonly lead to heartbreaks finally.
But the love that God teaches is with pure, generous and unconditional, and that is the way he wants us to love him first, and then we take the same love to our neighbors.
By God giving us Jesus Christ, his only son, he was setting for us an example of unconditional love, and sacrifice of our most valuable things to the ones we love, and in this case he wants us to sacrifice the smallest and simplest thing; that’s our hearts in loving him.
The main thing that Jesus emphasized was loving and being loyal to his father who sent him, and he told people to follow his example, of practicing the commandment of LOVE, which should start from loving the father.
God likes remorseful and soft hearts, most especially when we sin, he wants us to repent and go back to loving him, because it is even a control we can use to avoid sin. When a person loves God with all his or her heart, it is not easy to again indulge in sinful situations.
Our God is a jealousy God, who hates loving him along side other things, and he is right, because everything else in this world, were created by him, so sharing love with those things would be underrating his supremacy position.
When we love and trust in one God, he opens the heavens for us and every thing we do becomes a fountain of blessings that come from above.
