Teen Devotion Good works

“Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; – Matthew 23:5 (NIV)

We’ve been talking a lot this week about our relationship with Jesus. It’s easy during the christian life to fall in love with doing good. Perhaps you love helping at the food pantry, or volunteering at your church’s nursery.

And in all that doing good things, it’s easy to forget about the main thing: your relationship with Jesus.

We can often get so busy in doing good that we forget what all of this is about. It’s about knowing Jesus. It’s about having a deep and fulfilling relationship with Him.

Do I love doing good things more than Jesus?

So today, if you’ve been guilty of loving doing good things more than loving Jesus, make any necessary heart adjustments. Choose to make Jesus your priority and focus. Work on developing a close and thriving relationship with Him!
