All Judah rejoiced over the oath; for they had sworn with all their heart, and had sought him with their whole desire, and he was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around. (2 Chronicles 15:15 NRSV)
You may know someone like Ashley. As a child, Ashley was impassioned in her insistence that mom and dad pick all those little dehydrated onion squares from every McDonald's Happy Meal. Ashley's parents tried everything. Commands. "Ashley eat those onions!" History. "You ate onions when you were smaller. You love Gran's spaghetti and it has onions."Appeals to her desire to be grown up. "Grow up kid! Eat the onions! All adults like onions." They even tried begging. "Please! Cut mom and dad some slack and down that burger!"

But Ashley was icy cold in her resolve. "No!

Are we as resolved about putting God first, as we are about onions?

God of onions, may I put you passionately first in my life, moment by moment. Amen.
