Saturday, March 30, 2013
Many of us are so busy that we don’t really do what we think is most important every day. We get sidetracked, we get lazy, we get overwhelmed and we really don’t do what we should. Then by the end of the day, we wonder where it went. When we know what is most important in life, we can usually set our priorities from that. Let’s use today to decide what is most important to us in life and begin setting our priorities from there. Then we can know if we are doing what we should be doing each and every day.
Luke 12:21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us not be foolish. Help us to know what priorities we need to have in life in all things, especially with money and earthly things. We know You should be our first priority every day. We should strive for the right relationship with You rather than being overly concerned about money and earthly things. Help us today to set our priorities straight and begin living for You in all areas of our lives. Thank You, Lord what You are going to do in our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Focusing on earthly wealth will not give us anything that is truly from God.
Knowing that we are foolish to store up earthly wealth is a good indication we should focus on building our relationship with God and helping others.
God wants us to have a rich relationship with Him rather than a rich life filled with earthly things.
2 John 1:9 “Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.” (NLT)
