I have a wife, and… I value what she values.

When something makes her happy, it gives me joy.  When something makes her sad, I grieve as well.

What is important to her is important to me.  We share a heart for things, and I want to be part of her passions.

What does God care about and value?

  • Redemption of his people.
  • Finding all his children.

Paul says (thanks to The Message)

The thing that has me so upset is that I care about you so much—this is the passion of God burning inside me! I promised your hand in marriage to Christ, presented you as a pure virgin to her husband. And now I'm afraid that exactly as the Snake seduced Eve with his smooth patter, you are being lured away from the simple purity of your love for Christ.

(2 Corinthians 11:2-3)

God is all about redeeming his people and bringing them back to a relationship with Him.  Shouldn’t we be as well?

  1. Yes, we should and yet, often times, my selfishness gets in the way.
