Daily Thought: Spiritual Amnesia

"There is an epidemic of spiritual amnesia going around, and none of us is immune.  No matter how many fascinating details we learn about God's creation, no matter how many pictures we see of His galaxies, and no matter how many sunsets we watch we still forget.

"Most of us know that we are supposed to love and fear God; that we are supposed to read our Bibles and pray so that we can get to know Him better; that we are supposed to worship Him with out lives.  But actually living it out is challenging.

"It confuses us when loving God is hard.  Shouldn't it be easy to love a God so wonderful?  When we love God because we feel we should love Him, instead  of genuinely loving out or our true selves, we have forgotten who God really is.  Our amnesia is flaring up again." ~ Francis Chan, Crazy Love, p. 29
