However, those who treasure this knowledge do something with it as they spring into action. They build upon it instead of sit on it. They add increasing value to it through their faith and actions instead of devaluing a precious treasure. They set it aside as something personal instead of making it an impersonal thing they care little about as if it was an item to be pulled off the shelf and used at their convenience.
No, the knowledge of God’s love is something of priceless value. You would think after all He went through to show us what we are worth to Him we could at least get off our spiritual duffs and show Him back how much we care. We are as lazy as we make ourselves to be. Why are we so willing to stop at a good thing (knowing God loves us) when we can go on to even greater things such as a closer walk with the Lord?
Lazy. I’m sorry but that word just seems to fit. We think its all about receiving and not about the giving of ourselves in return. Our reasoning is, “God loves me so I should get all I want. The church is supposed to love me so they need to meet all my needs.” And the lazy attitude continues on.
The knowledge of the Creator of the Universe loving us should spring us into action not the other way around.
