Word of the Day: STRENGTH! "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." (Deut. 6:4,5). The word in Hebrew for strength or might is 'meod.' (pronounced, 'meh-ode'). One scholar defines it as loving God with 'muchness!' We are to put forth EXCEEDINGLY great effort into loving God 'very very much.' Where do we stop in our loving God? Do we slow down when it begins to be uncomfortable or inconvenient or unpopular? Loving God pass the stuff, further still, giving ALL we have! Strength.
