Last Friday my wife and I were invited to a small county churches’ evening of singing, fellowship and a meal. We had a great time but there was something unusual that caught my attention. An elderly man was there who was partially paralyzed from a stroke. It is hard for him to walk so he parked his pickup close to the fellowship hall entrance. When he got out of his pickup a small spaniel type dog got out of the back of the truck and went right to his side. She was pretty and well taken care of but one thing; she kept her eyes on him and followed him everywhere he went. As he went inside he stopped momentarily and told her to sit outside the door. I noticed that she kept watching him and kept her eyes on him and there was even a beautiful sparkle in her eyes, too. What devotion and love! That dog reminded me of something in the Bible. We should love God voluntarily and be devoted to Him. The Bible even tells how much; with all our heart, soul and mind, (Matthew 22:37). It also goes on to say we cannot serve two masters because we will hate one and love the other, especially material wealth and God (Matthew 6:24). God is a jealous God and he wants us to whole heartedly love Him, (Acts 8:37). See you in Church next Sunday.
