A Matter of Priority
I decided to stay with the same passage one more day because it's such a rich one. As I read through this parable again, it really got me thinking about my priorities when it comes to living for and serving God, and especially things like being involved at church, helping others in need and spending time with God in His Word. If I'm honest, my priorities aren't always in the right order. Just like the excuse examples in the parable, I allow things to push serving God over to the side.
It is my greatest desire to serve God wholeheartedly. So this parable was good for me to read because it helped tuned me back in to how I go about prioritizing my activities and how I am spending my time. I have to start every day with the mindset--God first.
What are some things that can crowd in and get in the way of serving God fully in your life? What helps you maintain a "God first" mindset throughout the day? Tami
