God is not a program. God is not a building. God is not a financial offering. God is not a pastor. God is not a pastor’s vision. God is not a ministry. God is not a service. God is love. If you want to put God first, then let love be the guiding light in all you do.
Putting ‘God first’ in your life means putting love first. Put the way you love your family, your friends, your neighbors first in your life. Let love, in its active form, be first in your life. Do that and you’ll always be putting God first, for God is love.
God is love and love is God. The two are the same Spirit at work in the world. You cannot separate them, for they are perfectly the same entity. Every time someone loves another person, that is God. Every time someone is moved to help another person, that is God. Every time someone chooses to lay their life down for another person, that is God. God is love. God is the Spirit that is moving people to do these beautiful heart-actions that we know as love. Mick Mooney
