Deuteronomy 6:5 NASB "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." Put your back into it!! Today's Word is something we must ask ourselves, do we? While wheelbarrowing some concrete, the foreman began to tell the guys who were going slower to put our back into it, meaning to use all our strength. it wasn't that they were getting tired, they just didn't give it all they had. Sometimes we love the Lord only so far and not as today's Word speaks. Doing anything half way, only using some of our strength will get the job done half way and most likely not that well. Putting all our heart and soul and strength in loving God will make the difference in our life. Just imagine if we did that with all things, like loving our wives, our children, our enemies?! Let's not do it half way but go all the way, in all our strength! We will see the difference and let's encourage others to join us in doing so! Let's put our back into it! peace, tom
