I was curious the first time I heard the statement above, that my God is a jealous God. I thought He would be all loving, happy, glorious and joyous God – at all time. But I was wrong. I learned along the way that my God is a jealous God.
He wants all of our love centered to Him. He wants all of our life be directed toward Him. And that’s including our daily habits, our simple manners and even, the slightest thought in our head. He will be jealous if we compare Him to an instant help provided by other gods, because He loves process – in which He can shape us to be a better person. He will be jealous if we choose other gods above Him – like going to mall on Sundays and forget to go to Mass (as simple as that!), or ask around about our future, instead of coming to Him.
I gotta love this big Guy! Even if He’s a jealous Guy. Because once He loved me, He will always be! He is madly in love with me – so why should I look around to other gods?
Have a good Sunday!
