1 Kings 16.34
but at a terrible cost
oh God may we recognize that not following you comes at a terrible cost - not just affecting our lives but the lives of those around us. may we also see the flip side, which is the terribly great benefit of following you, of obeying you, of keeping your ways and making sure that we are maximized to do and keep doing what you have us here for, for us to love on others as you have loved on us first. thank you for such great reminders, lord, thank you for your love, thank you for your sovereignty.
