“IT’S A NO-BRAINER!”

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”  1John 4:16 NIV

 

Read:  1John 4:1-21

 

My computer’s spell check tells me ‘no-brainer’ is not a word.  But, in this part of the world it has been used for decades.   Merriam-Webster tells us that a no-brainer is something that ‘requires a minimum of thought’.  It is believed to be an American slang first used in the late 1950’s.

 

Loving GOD should be a ‘no-brainer’.   We should not have to think about it.  We should just do it.   Still, it has been a problem for GOD’S sinful people since the beginning of time.

Adam and Eve failed at truly loving GOD when they ate the fruit HE had forbid.  Moses had a problem with his temper going against GOD several times.  David proved his problems of loving GOD with selfish actions.
People today…all people are proving they have the same problems loving GOD just as people of thousands of years ago.   As much as we have changed, we have not changed that much at all.

 

Loving our CREATOR is a choice.   It is decision that only has to be made once.  Then knowing we have made a choice to love GOD, it should be a no-brainer to show HIM the love and respect we should.

Don’t allow others to influence you wrongly.  Loving GOD is a no-brainer…just do it.

Today’s prayer:   “MY FATHER, Thank YOU for loving me.  Thank YOU for forgiving my lack of love and selfishness.   Be with me and guide me to love YOU and help others through the love YOU have given me.  Amen.”
