Scripture reference: “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit”. – Romans 8:5.
The Christian faith is best viewed as a relationship with God and man. This relationship, like any other, is fed by constant communication.
Of all the relationships that we must pursue in life, we must constantly pursue our relationship with God and build it every day. The reason it is important to love God first and more is that our relationship for God serves every other relationship. God‘s love always seeks to make us the better version of ourselves at any given any point.
Also our love for God is in response to the amazing sea of love that he has for us. Someone said “I’m at my best when I’m in the presence of my Maker”. In becoming the best person to be in a relationship with, a living relationship with God is the most necessary ingredient.

Lord, help me to love you enough to always crave a relationship with you. I acknowledge you as my Creator and I realize now that I am at my best when I am with you. Help me to mature in knowing you and trusting you and talking with you every day.
