Priorities

Matthew 6:33 Priority CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO

After nearly threescore years of living, I have seen a few things.  One thing I’ve learned is that if you get your priorities straight, difficult decisions are going to be easier to make and your life is going to count for more.  The New Testament gives us some excellent priorities.

The Kingdom of God should be your priority in your personal pursuits – Matt 6:33 – seek ye first the kingdom of God

Your Lord should be your priority in your personal possessions – 2 Cor 8:5 – they first gave their own selves to the Lord

Your cross should be your priority in your personal price – Lk 14:27-28 – whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple … which of you … sitteth not down first and counteth the cost

Your beam should be your priority in your personal responsibility – Matt 7:5 – first cast out the beam out of thine own eye

Your brothers should be your priority in your personal relationships – Matt 5:24 – first be reconciled to thy brother and then come and offer they gift
