"GIVE HIM YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION AND YOU LOVE HIM"


Give Him your time and attention and you love Him. Let's go to:

Psalms 40:6 "Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened: burnt offering
and sin offering hast Thou not required." (KJV)

sacrifice (Strong's 2077) sacrifice of righteousness or thank offering; (Strong's 2076) to slaughter
an animal usually in sacrifices or offerings or slay;
offering (Strong's 4503) to apportion, to bestow (present as a gift), tribute or gift;
desire (Strong's 2654) to incline, bend, be pleased with, favored or like;
ears (Strong's 241) ear, hear or show; (from Strong's 238) ) to hear, listen or expand;
opened (Strong's 3738) to dig, plot, bore or open;
burnt (Strong's 5930) ascend up (as smoke), burnt offering or sacrifice;
sin (Strong's 2401) offence, sacrifice for it; (from Strong's 2398) to miss, sin, forfeit, lack, lead
astray or condemn;
required (Strong's 7592) to inquire, to request, demand or wish.

Let Him open up your ears and expand your mind in Him and what it is that He has to say to you. When
you open up His Word and get the true in depth meaning of what it is that He has to say to you, you are
showing Him the love and the respect that you care about Him.

Just think He is your closest and best Friend, so why not put the time and effort on your part to know
Him more! It is just like with a dear friend. You do not open up to someone that is not there for you and
does not spend time with you. That friendship is built upon giving of yourself and sharing with that
person. The more you want to share, listen to and build faith into that friendship, the better the
friendship becomes.

So why not build up on Him so that you can enjoy Him more. Look at what He does for you, your loved
ones and those around you each day. In addition, when you learn and know more about Him, the better
off you are not needing much from others, but able to give of yourself to them so that they too can see
Him. That is how you love dear God when you share His Power, Ability and Confidence by knowing
Him and what makes Him proud and happy with you from His Love Letter to you. HE wants your love
as here in:

Hosea 6:6 "For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings."
(KJV)

Lastly, give Him your time and attention and you love Him. That is giving Him your love. Love is to
give of oneself, so spend that quality time with Him. Why not be happier, full of peace and filled with
much more blessings in life because you love Him. Do this not only for you, but those that He put into
your life to make you better. He loves you for that already and knows you will make Him proud as
always.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Gifts,

Cryptic definitions and unconstructed sentences do more to detract than stylize the essay. The meanings intended get lost in the convolution.
Therefore, all of your wonderful effort goes unrecognized. I think you have a lot to say, but it is hard to see the intended communication.
