Something about watching romantic comedies makes us relationship gurus.
We can see potential threats to fidelity and loyalty from a mile away...within the unrealistic confines of one of Hollywood's steadfast genres.
- "No! Don't go out with him! Can't you see he doesn't really care about you?"
- "That guy better stop hanging out after work with her..."
- "What are they THINKING??!?"
But when it comes to real life, we struggle a bit.
In fact, we struggle so much that it wouldn't hurt to get the 13th quote about Jesus (on azquotes.com's top-25 list) put on a pair of contact lenses so it was always in front of us:
"Beware of anything
that competes with your loyalty
to Jesus Christ." - Oswald Chambers
Truth is...Whether it's commitment to a sports team or loyalty to a job or even dedication to a particular idea about Jesus, anything that takes precedence ahead of allegiance to the actual person of Jesus is a foundation of shifting sand.
