When God is not your priority
Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need...for wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. Luke 12:27-31, 34 Most Christians when asked about their priority in life, usually they will respond and claim that God is their first priority. Though this is what should be their priority, yet their actions prove otherwise. Their actions expose that they value more the things of the world. How you spend your time and the material blessings that God provides will show what you value most. How you conduct your life and the way you relate to others will also be good indicators of what is important in your life. When you find it difficult to talk to others about your relationship with God yet find it easy to talk about your favorite sports team or show then your attitude demonstrates what is important to you. This is also true when you find it easy to do other things yet find it difficult to spend time with God. If you are not sure as to whom your allegiance really belongs, then you have to examine if God is really the Lord of your life. If people around you could not distinguish your preference as a child of God between the things of God and the things of the world, then it will be difficult for you to make an impact to the lives of others. Go back again to your first love which is God. “Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first” (Revelation 2:5). Make God’s priority your priority in life, “for wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be” (Luke 12:34).
