Mark 12:30

If you were to pick out one principle for competing in your sport as the most important, which would it be?  If there were one commandment for life that is primary, what would it be?  Jesus spoke clearly about such and His words are recorded in Mark chapter 12 and verse 30.

There we read the most important commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and will all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

Jesus said that the most important thing in life is to love God like this:
• With all your heart – with strong emotional attachment.  Love God passionately.
• With all your soul – with purposeful, willful desire.  Love God on purpose.
• With all your mind – with intellectual understanding.  Love God wisely.
• With all your strength. – with strong physical performance.  Love God actively.
• Love God with 100% of your person, with integrity.

As you prepare today, fix your heart, soul, mind and strength toward competing passionately, purposefully, wisely and actively.  That will lead you to a performance that will be pleasing to your teammates, your coaches, the fans and even to God.
