One of physical life's most distressing daily demands is determining what is important. Every day's demands require every ounce of energy we have and every minute of time we have. If you are a typical person, it is highly likely that you have re-prioritized your life on numerous occasions. New Year's Day comes, and you make resolutions that should help focus your life on things of true importance. Our intentions are good. It is just that our intentions do not last long. A critical need arises. An emergency happens. Someone refuses to take "no" for an answer. Someone places expectations on you that you can either accept or feel guilty. Before you know it, the immediate crowds out the important. What we feel is "necessary at the moment" takes control of what we know to be "important in life." When we realize what is happening, how do we react? Most of us react in one of these three ways (or all three): (1) we stress out; (2) we worry; or (3) we are filled with a sense of anxiety. Jesus said that happens to us because we forget life's true priorities. In Matthew 6:31-34 we are told “Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear? 32For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. 33But seek ([a]aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ([b]His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [c]taken together will be given you besides. 34So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. Join Pastor Ronald Greene as he discusses making God our first priority.
