Matthew 6:33 puts the pattern for Christian living in a nutshell. Seek first the kingdom of God. In my busy life I cannot do everything. However, the thing I CAN decide is what to do first. What I choose first, over time, takes first place in my life.
If I look at the entries in my calendar or checkbook for the past month, will I be surprised by what has been first place in my life lately?
What matters the most to you right now, this very instant? Ok, now fast forward your life till you are standing in front of Jesus up in heaven. What matters to you most now?
Did it change? Mine did!
Lord, help me to remember what matters most and keep my foremost thought of that and NOT me!
