Go With All Your Heart

0C7C1FD0-A3B9-4CDE-A60B-49D502F988A1“And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:37-39 ESV

Go With All Your Heart

Yesterday’s events aligned in such a way that this post is truly fresh. In Sunday school yesterday, we discussed how we should be in constant prayer with God, always doing our best and praising Him, no matter the circumstances. Shortly after Church, my sweet mother-in-law mentioned how she always enjoys what she is doing at the moment; and, she is always doing something for others. And our exchange student from Spain related her joy from being at a party with mostly strangers, relishing every experience in a foreign country. Finally, my wife spent over four hours on the phone with an airline agent, getting our tickets in order. All of these things reminded me of the greatest two commandments, which combine to say, “Go with all your heart”.

With all our sophisticated technologies and brilliant minds, mankind cannot create a single living cell. And if we could, imagine the odds of that cell dividing and mutating in precisely the right way to form multiple functioning organs that then coordinate together in the exact way necessary for life of an organism. There would be no reason for a heart if it had no where to pump blood and no reason for blood unless it had a place to go and a reason for going. These different cell types and organs need to form in a particular time sequence that would allow for each other’s survival. Some statisticians have estimated that the universe has not existed long enough for these random events to occur. Thinking about it makes me conclude that only something Divine can explain it.
