Does Our Love for God Have Competition?

It is easy to say that we love God. We can even quote the scripture that commands us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. But do we? I know that I do not always love the Lord as I was created for. Augustine prayed this words:

He loves Thee too little
Who loves anything together with Thee,
Which he loves not for Thy sake.

All that we have are gifts from God; and all that we do is for his glory. May we delight in the Lord alone, and may everything else be means for further joy and delight in him.

Have a good day
