Love for God

Today and for the next several days, we will look at different kinds of love in the Bible — love for God, love for friends, love for family, love for Jesus and God’s love for us.
In our Bible Reading, we read that God asked Abraham to offer his son, Isaac, as a sacrifice. Abraham and his wife, Sarah, waited many years to have a son. They were so happy when Isaac was born. But then God asked Abraham to kill Isaac.
Most of all, Abraham loved God. That’s what made him take Isaac up on the mountain and prepare to kill him. God stopped Abraham from killing Isaac. But through this, Abraham showed God how much he loved Him. And Abraham also showed God he had faith that God would take care of him.
How much do you love God? Probably God will not ask you to sacrifice your child, but He may ask you to be a missionary or give your time and money to help other people. Think about your love for God today.
