What am I holding back?


Jesus wants everything.  I cannot count the costs and say, "well...I'll just keep this one thing for my life."  NO! What am I holding back?

You shall love the Lord 
your God with all
your heart and with 
all your soul
and with all your mind

If I let go of everything for him, he'll naturally become my obsession.  

At the same time, he commands me to love others.  This is a ridiculous task..if I'm living a life of self.

I prayed that God would show me what he wants me to do today.  I think he wants me to avoid petty arguing and to look after those being unjustly treated.  I don't know how to treat the other guys when they pick on __________.  I need the Lord's wisdom for that.
