Have you ever thought much about whom or what should come first in your life? For some, it may be their family, yet others may say their job, and still others may say themselves. In reality, it’s “none of the above.” God should take the utmost priority in our lives. He’s either Lord of all or not Lord at all. When we put God first, the rest of our lives seem to fall into place. We should put God first, then our spouse, then children, and then our job or profession. When we prioritize God, He is able to help, lead and guide our lives. There are many that have been taught that “family comes first”. The Bible actually teaches us that to love God and love our families a little less than God. Today, it’s the opposite. In Luke 14:26 Jesus says, “…you cannot be my disciple if you don’t ‘hate’ your family.” What Jesus was teaching was that you must love God more and put him first in order to be a true follower. Let’s give God and His Word the proper position in our lives.
Just a Thought,
