It is really important to put first things first.
If you put on your shoes and then follow with your socks you can be sure of one thing, you are headed for a bad day!
If you press the accelerator on the car before you have checked that the road is clear then it is probable that the next few moments will have a lasting impact upon you!
Our lives are filled with lists of priorities: some things we want to do, some things we don’t want to do and some things that we have to do. Learning to fulfil the important priorities in the correct order is one of the keys to living a successful life. If you get the order wrong then things start to go astray; wearing your underwear outside of your trousers may make you look like superman but you really won’t be able to leap the tall buildings.
Jesus gave us a simple list to follow. Completion of this list gives us a guarantee of success in many of the areas which consume our time, energy and resources. So let’s remember this today and encourage each other to follow Christ’s plan for success!
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ “For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:31-33
