Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. — Matthew 22:37

There are many times in my life when I have heard the words, “I was thinking about you.” I have heard those words said to me as I entered a room or arrived somewhere and saw someone after a long time. Perhaps I called someone that I hadn’t spoken with in a while, and they said those words to me.

The words were a reminder that I was at the front of their mind. They had a million other things that they could think about. But instead, they chose to think about me. They weren’t focused on their worries and problems. Instead, they were thinking about me and the relationship that we had.

As Jesus described to the people this day the love that they should have for God, I wonder how many overlooked the last part of the statement. We often read about loving God with all our heart and soul. But Jesus takes it a step further, saying that we should love Him with all our minds.

In other words, the first thing on our mind should be God. He should be the dominant thing in our thoughts each and every day. It would be as if God entered the room where we are right now, and we would be able to say, “I was thinking about you.”

Is your mind consumed with the thoughts of everything else going on around you? Are you worried about the cares of life, troubles, heartaches? They will dominate your mind if you are not careful, putting God second. Instead, He should be the first thing on our minds.

Across the world, there are Christians who need encouragement and strength that only God’s word can provide. We are focused on helping Christians find encouragement, develop stronger relationships with God, and help non-Christians come to accept Jesus Christ as Savior. Another Well Ministries is a non-profit ministry that relies on donations to continue our work. You can find out more about us and ways to support us here.
