Infrequent Expressions

dozen-roses-lgI am not one to buy gifts for my wife, Karen. It almost never happens. She has grown accustomed to this. Therefore, she was shocked when I came home with a dozen roses on our 25th wedding anniversary. The conversation went something like this:

Her: “Who are those for?”

Me: “They are for you!”

Her: “Who are they from?”

It was then that I realized that I had set the bar far too low! My wife’s expectations were nearly non-existent!

It is a shame if we set the bar too low in our expressions of love for God. Let us make sure that our heavenly Father receives frequent and significant attention.

“Jesus replied: ’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.’”—Matthew 22:37-38.
