Getting Priorities Straight

In this day and age, one can always feel he or she has too much to do.  When we are not busy, there are times we are thinking about what all we have to do.  During these times, it can be easy to forget about prayer time and communing with God.  But in Luke 10:40-42, this is addressed as it states “But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, ‘Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone?  Then tell her to help me.’  But the Lord answered and said to her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.'”

When this happens to me, I just stop and remember priorities and begin by reaching out to God and when I do, everything just falls into place; often effortlessly.


Priorities Changed

For many years, my social calendar was one of the most important things to me without even realizing this fact.  As I get dressed for Church this morning, I think of the many selfless individuals who work behind the scene so that the service goes smoothly.  Hebrews 13:8 comes to thought as it reads, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  How humbling and comforting are those words to me as my heart fills with gratitude for Church services throughout.
