37-39: Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'
Couple days ago, I recovered the thankfulness I lost, and it made me realize once again the night and day difference between living a life of thankfulness to God vs. just living a life. The realization came most with spending more and more time around Dawon who’s been sick going through something I can’t even bear to imagine being sick in the same way, and it just made me so grateful for even my basic health which I took for granted. I lose this thankfulness, when I sin, and disobey, and just do what I want. I’m sinful by nature, and it’s impossible for me to not sin, but to repent and recover quickly, save whatever precious life I have left from wasting away. And the road to quick recovery comes from being close with the Word, and praying, even when it doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t matter so much what I read, or what the story is, or what I take away from it. It matters that I’m eating his Word, which is to be in HIM, and which is to let HIM be in me. I think same goes with QT. When I’m doing QT every day, The content isn’t always going to be great, and there’s going to be spelling and grammar mistakes of all kinds, but the point isn’t the content, but point is spending time with God.
Application: prepare for mokjang with God, read at least 1 chapter before going to sleep
