You ever find yourself going through life with mental check offs? Subconsciously believing the more things you check off the more loved your are by God. When we manage to check off daily devotions, scripture readings, church attendance etc., we feel more deserving of God’s love. Yet it’s not the checks that have any real value. Of course not many would admit to thinking such irrational thoughts but as I walked this morning, I was reminded God’s love for me has never been on the basis of my ability to mark off all the daily checks. Before we ever knew to compose those lists, God was busy putting into action a plan, which demonstrates just how valuable we are to Him.
