Extravagant Love

Posted on Saturday, August 18, 2012 in Emotional, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love“, the singer sang.  1

Watching the movie Lion King this week reminded me of that kind of unfailing love.

Simba lost his father King Mufasa through the treachery of his uncle.  As time passes the young adult, but rebellious king-to-be is avoiding responsibility accompanied by his friends Timon and Pumbaa.

Rafiki, the monkey-mentor, led Simba through the wilderness to a pool of water. Ripples form across the surface of the water, reflecting Mufasa’s face. Simba has a vision of his father speaking to him. 2

What Does The Lord Your God Require Of You?

I’m thinking through what this means for me today, tomorrow, and my tomorrows.

What does the Lord your God require of you?
He requires only that you
fear the Lord your God,
and live in a way that pleases him,
and love him
and serve him with all your heart and soul.
- Deuteronomy 10:12, NLT
