Think a minute…If you made a list of your most important priorities, all the people and things that mean the most to you, what would be on your list? You would probably have things like your family, job, schooling, friends and fun.
Now look at your life. Are you living your list? How are you spending most of your time? Do you really practice your priorities? Someone said: “If we don’t actually practice our priorities, then they’re not really our priorities.”
Our actions and lifestyle speak much louder than our words. If we don’t live it, we don’t believe it. How we spend our time shows what we love and care about. We almost always find the time to do the things we really want to.
Unfortunately, our jobs, personal hobbies and pleasures can become more important to us than they should. Soon these pleasures and our profession can replace our most important priorities. They end up controlling how we live and what we do in our free time during the evenings and weekends.
Maybe you realize today that you’re not really living your list.
You’re not spending most of your time on your most important priorities in life. You’re not spending enough time on your marriage and children, other people, as well as your own personal character growth. Most importantly, you’re not spending enough time on the most important person and priority in life: your own Creator Who has a great plan for your life. But you can start changing that today by asking Jesus Christ to forgive you for not putting Him first in your life.
Jesus promises that if you will put Him first in every relationship and area of your life, He will give you everything you need for the successful, satisfying life He created you to enjoy. So it’s actually quite simple: Jesus IS your list. Just Think a Minute…
