He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Matthew 10.37.

The Lord demands us to give Him all. It will not do if we give Him a little less. It is not relative but absolute love He requires of us. Loving the Lord to the extent of wounding ourselves will bring us to the place of rejoicing in our loving Him. If we love but do not rejoice in love, we have not loved to the extent of being wounded. But for those who do, their experience will be, that as they are bearing the cross, they shall commence to sing.

"Worthy" must first be considered from the Lord's side. Is the Lord worthy of your love? The whole problem revolves around whether the Lord is worthy; not how much we forsake the Lord, but how much He is worthy of our service. If we regard as an extraordinary act a prince proclaiming the gospel, we remain ignorant of the glory and majesty of our Lord. Our Lord is worthy!—worthy to be served by all the elites of this world.
