Matthew 27:59-60 NKJV
When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, & laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; & he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, & departed.
Jesus says to love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, & strength. This love can be easily self-evaluated by examining how we spend our two most precious commodities: TIME & MONEY. Here, Joseph takes his time preparing Jesus’ body for burial, & spends his money by giving away his own nice tomb. Mary was also commended for spending time at Jesus’ feet. The rich young ruler lost salvation over his unwillingness to give his money to Jesus’ cause.
God is not interested in partial love. Any relationship will fail if both are not fully invested.
Let’s show our love to our generous Father by gladly giving Him our time & money! 🙂
Eternal Father, give me a true desire to give U all of my heart each day. I want to love U w/ ALL i am, amen.
