In the sports world Sunday is a big day. We have our NFL games, afternoon MLB baseball, NASCAR races, golf tournaments, NBA games and the list goes on and on. As a sports fan I look forward to these events just as much as the next fan, however I can't forget the real reason I look forward to Sundays.
I've been kicking around the idea of sharing something small and personal on my blog each Sunday. I don't do it to be preachy or to offend, only to share an important part of my life. Each Sunday going forward this year I just wanted to share a short scripture verse from the Bible that is laid on my heart. Sometimes it'll be one of my favorite verses while other times it may be a verse that was presented to me @ church. Either way it's just something small I wanted to share.
Today's verse comes from the new testament book of Mark. Someone had asked Jesus what the great of all the Commandments were and this was His response:
Mark 12:30 (NIV)
30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Many of you who follow my blog may remember reading about some struggles my family and myself have gone through. I would be stupid to think that I could handle all this on my own. My shoulders are simply not broad enough to carry the load. God has been so good to me and my family and I could fill up paragraph after paragraph with the things He has done for us. Thanks dad, I love you!
