What matters most to you in life? Answering that question goes a long way to revealing what it is you worship.

Read Matthew 22:34-40. When Jesus is asked what matters most, his reply is to put God first:

Matthew 22:37–38 NLT

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’. This is the first and greatest commandment.

Jesus says, first things first: If you believe God is God then the practical outworking of your worship is to love him with all you heart, all your soul and all your mind. In the end, he says, it doesn’t matter about all the laws, and which one is most important. What matters most is your loving relationship with the one true God.

Loving God is your first priority in life. When we make anything else our top priority, then our lives can be easily wasted. So, your life is not about you. It’s not about making as much money as possible. It’s not about being popular and seeking people’s approval. It’s not about anything the world thinks is important.

The goal of your life is to love God with total devotion. When we understand that, then life really starts to make sense.
