"More Than These" (John 21:15)

If you're a teacher, has this ever happened to you? A student asks you a question, you spend a few minutes answering it, and then he says, "Well, that's not what I was asking." Oops! In John 21, Jesus asks Peter, "Do you love me more than these?" Peter answers, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love." Jesus replies, "That's not what I asked you, Peter. Do you love me more than these?" -- meaning, more than your fishing gear and your business. How easy it is for God's good gifts to us to become the object of our affection! 

As we go through the day today, let's ask ourselves, "Do I love the blessing more than the Blesser? Do I love the provision more than the Provider?" 

Have a wonderful day!
