Daily I struggle with which ones to grasp, which ones to release. Few are wrong. But how many do I grasp too tightly? How many have become idols in my life?
We are to value One above all others. One we cannot yet look on. One we cannot physically touch. One we cannot achieve by our own striving.
Am I aching for the One? Am I putting that One before all others? Does the One occupy the most prominent place in my life?

… that One is Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.
He is the One to be cherished above all!
He is there for all.
Do you know Him?
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30)

By His daily grace,
