On Wednesdays, the My Faith and Fitness Blog will feature a passage of scripture and questions to encourage us to reflect on how we can each live a life that pleases God and allows us to fulfill the plans that God has prepared for us.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. ~ Matthew 10:37-38 (KJV)
If God tested your love and devotion for God, what grade would you earn?
Have you taken your cross and followed Jesus?
If yes, how do you know that it is YOUR cross and that it does not belong to someone else?
How do you show Jesus that you love Him more than your mother? Father? Spouse? Children? Siblings?
