What God Wants 


2 Corinthians 8:21


We want to do what the Lord accepts as right and also what people think is right.


There is always a reason when a creator creates something. For instance, the light bulb was created to help people see clearly by giving some light when it is dark. That is how the light bulb serves its creator and all people. 


God also created us for a reason. He wants you and me to love and to serve Him and others too. How are you going to do it? 


Firstly, love and serve God with all your heart and all your soul. You love God because He loves you first. Loving God comes before you can follow His command. When you love someone, you will give him or her a special place in your heart. 


Secondly, obey His commands and live according to God’s way. His commands are given to us to keep us safe and happy. We can understand His commands by reading the Bible and listening to His word.


Thirdly, love others and help them when they need help. God also wants us to love and help each other.


Prayer


Dear God, thank You for creating me and loving me. I want to do what You want me to do. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
