I've become so self-centred that I've viewed salvation as a bare minimum to be maintained. How far can I go without crossing the line? Obedience should be my focus, not whether i'm going to "make it" or not.
I need to stop seeing my time with God as a time-clock to be punched. Oh, I've filled my quota for the day. I won't do any more of that until tomorrow. NO. My relationship with Him is important and needs to gain priority.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, because He gave nothing less than that for you. He deserves every ounce of your focus, just from being God Himself. What he's done for you is secondary in that you should not focus on what He can do for you, but the fact that He's ALMIGHTY GOD. It's what we've been made for, to worship Him. To acknowledge who He is. What could possibly be more important? NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Our hearts should be so brim-full of gratitude and love. But what do we do? We focus on everything but Him. How that must hurt. I know how much it hurts to give my all to someone and have it be utterly rejected. How much greater His hurt must be... =(
