Loving God

     Teresa recently posted on loving God.  It is really good, you should go and read it.  After reading her post it got me thinking.  Not only are we supposed to love God with all our heart, but with all our mind. 

And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
Matthew 22:37

     Well, what does that mean?  My dad is taking some classes at MBI on the side, and one of the books he had to read was titled just that,  "Love God with all your Mind" by J. P. Moreland.  He says it is a very good book, so I'd recommend it.  Consequently, we talked about it at devotions for a couple of days.

     How can you love God with all your mind?  What do you use your mind for?  Primarily, I use mine to think and do school.  :) We can love God with our mind by honoring him with our thoughts and our school.  Do we do our school for Jesus?  Or do we do it because our moms told us to, we want to look smart etc. ?  What about your thoughts?  What are you always thinking about?  (I'm not just talking to you here, I am just as guilty) Do your thoughts glorify God?  If not, take them captive...

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ...
2 Corinthians 10:5
