Mark 12:28 “Which commandment is the first of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30 you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
There is no other commandment greater than these.’”
Ask anyone how they are doing and they are likely to respond with one word: “Busy.” When we are super busy, it is easy to neglect more important matters that deserve and demand our attention. Matters like cultivating quiet time that calms us in the midst of chaos or nurturing relationships that sustain us as we journey through life. So often we are overly concerned about practical matters and forget about our personal relationships; relationships with those whom we love – family, friends and the Author of our Faith.
Paul Powell tells the story of a well-known preacher from years ago. His name was Carter Jones. Carter had a small room in the attic of his home that he used as a place of prayer. When he was especially burdened, he would make his way up the winding staircase to that room to spend some quiet moments with God. The members of his family knew that when he went to the attic room for prayer they were not to bother him under any circumstances.
