Putting God First
This is something I need to work on.
How many people really Love God with all your heart and put him first in your lives?* Most of us find it easy to love our children with all our hearts and to put them first.
The world teaches us to put ourselves first. It teaches us to strive for success and this will be measured by our income or material possessions.
When evaluating your life, what would you say it is that you put first, be honest.* I have put myself, my job, and a number of things before God. In a world that's run by money, it's hard to get my priorities straight.
Does anyone else struggle with this? ☺
Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV)
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment
Luke 14:26King* (KJV)
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.
