Psalm 40:7, 17
Sacrifice and offering you do not want; but ears open to obedience you gave me. But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you.

Making sacrifices and giving things up are in and of themselves pointless unless the outcome is that we are freer to seek God. God does not need our sacrifices…but yearns for our attention and a relationship with us. The God of the universe is in love with you and longs for a relationship with you. Jesus shows us the way. When we are in oneness with God we discover our true selves. May we put aside all the stuff that we think will satisfy our deepest longings and pursue the only One who can.
