”But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” –Matthew 6:33
What is your first priority in life? The answer may seem obvious but we really cannot give mere verbal affirmation to having God’s Kingdom as our highest priority. The truth is that our priorities are spelled out more by our actions and by our investments than by our words. How do you spend your time? How are you investing your talents and your treasure? The answer to questions such as these determine what our priorities truly are.
Many years ago I determined to set my own priorities as God, wife and family, church, and then social life. For years I’ve lived in the struggle of trying to keep those priorities straight. Having made a conscious decision to put God first has made a tremendous difference, and I’m grateful that Angie has decided that I don’t come before God in her life either. What ranks at the top for your life? Have you decided that God’s Kingdom will be your top priority?
