Choosing Our Priorities

"I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one
husband, to Christ, so I might present you as a pure virgin to him."
- 2 Corinthians 11:2 (NIV). 

Time is an item that I find to be in short supply. I don't seem to
have enough time to get everything done. I have moved through life
procrastinating -- tomorrow, I'll do it -- but tomorrow never comes,
and life has its limits.

I am beginning to realize that my life on earth will someday come to
an end, and there are still many things I want to do. I am beginning
to be faced with limits. I am realizing that there is not going to be
enough time to do everything, so I have to begin setting priorities.
The harsh reality is dawning that I must make painful choices. I must choose to spend more time on some things, and leave others out.

Because this is true, life demands that we begin to put some things
first. We must decide which is most important. We must get our
priorities straight. In doing this, we are likely to get things
prioritized, and some things will be left out. You shall have no other gods before me. - Exodus 20:3 (NIV).

If we put God first, we find all other things fall into their proper
places. This doesn't mean we never do anything but pray, go to
church, and study the Bible. It means that we take our direction from God. Sometimes it may mean we have to put some things aside. It may mean saying "No" to people and "Yes" to God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, show us your priorities. Teach us what is important, and how our lives can function if you are first.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
