Proverbs 21:3 The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer Him sacrifices.
In Matthew 22 the disciples ask Jesus what the most important commandment was.. Jesus said that we are to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. And that we are to love our neighbor as our self. Psalms 54:13 says that we are to make thankfulness our sacrifice to God. The verse above says to me that it is more important to be loving to God and others than it is to be thankful. And it is so important to be thankful to God! So important! And as important as it is to be thankful it is even more important to be loving, to love God and to love people. We can be thankful all day long.. but if we are not loving to the people around us we have pretty much voided out that thankfulness. I believe it is like this... If we are really thankful for all that God as done for us, we will choose to be loving to Him and to others. When we are loving, when we treat people like we want to be treated.. we do what is right and we do what is just. It all works together... when we love, like we should love all the following all the other commandments will fall right into place! Love is what matters the most!!
