When people feel this way they start saying things like, “You’re the one” or “You complete me.”
Reference: Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. (Psalm 146:3 NIV)
Explore: It’s so lovely to be in love; that warm, fuzzy feeling that makes everyday moments seem so wonderful.
When people feel this way they start saying things like, “You’re the one” or “You complete me.” Their friends see less of them as they dedicate every spare moment to being in their loved one’s presence.
When we find someone special it’s lovely to see all the amazing attributes that they have. But in the initial stages it’s like we forget they are human, they have faults and are not perfect.
Even when we dedicate our lives to someone else through marriage, it will not take us long to discover that they are not perfect. They leave their wet towels on the floor, they don’t squeeze the toothpaste from the bottom, they burn your favourite meal, and they don’t discipline the children the same way you do!
This doesn’t mean that we never consider having strong relationships with other people, it just means that we need to be aware of the difference between humans and perfection.
Application: The only one who is perfect is God. He is always loving, always faithful, always present, and He always listens (and He never leaves a wet towel on the floor!!)
When it comes to giving ourselves completely, the greatest One we can dedicate our lives to is God. While even our friends and family can let us down, God is always there for us and looking out for the best for us.
While we strive to be the best person we can be, let’s stay connected to the ultimate One.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your constant dedication to us. May we be faithful friends to others, but not lose sight of Your divine perfection. Amen.
When has God shown His dedication to you?
