“We make our priorities and then our priorities make us.” When I read that today, I grabbed my phone and captured that thought. I’ve spoken and written about the importance of priorities. This thought though set my mind a whirring!
As I’ve thought about it, I agree. Sometimes a statement like this hits me, but I have to ponder it. If you were to ask me about my life, I would tell you what Jesus means to me and what he has graciously done for me. The priorities of that life have shaped me though. Priorities like “You must not have any other god but me.” Exodus 20:3, (NLT) and “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27, (NLT)
Priorities for Christ follower emerge from the Word of God. However imperfectly I’ve pursued them, those priorities have shaped me and continue to do so.
Where do your priorities come from?
What are your priorities?
How has your live been changed by your priorities?
Peace and Joy!
