Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5 (HCSB)
Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.

As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.

remembering that we are dust.

Romans 8:32-34 (HCSB)
