Rediscovering our "first love"

The feeling that love is missing from our lives can often give us an anxious and hopeless view of life. To feel this way is to experience a lack of connectedness, not just with others, even though this is so important, but with the very source of our being, namely God. For when this—our "first love," as the Bible puts it (Rev. 2:4)—appears missing, then all our other relationships can seem superficial and meaningless.

We don't have to feel this way. The solution lies in rediscovering and preserving our sense of unity with God. When our primary relationship with our Maker is clearly in view, we find it expressed in substantial and meaningful relationships with the rest of His creation. Jesus put it this way: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33).
