I’ve often heard people talk about their priority lists. Recently I’ve been pushed into obliterating mine, in light of Jesus.
Priority list in the past:
6. Extended Family
New Priority List (Made when the above priority list was obliterated):
“Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him.”
Before you get all riled up, don’t think for a minute that I am leaving my wife, children, church, etc. I am not. The greatest thing I could pursue for my wife, children, church, etc., is Jesus the Christ. When I pursue Him with all of me, all of those other “priorities” will recognize how much they are loved by me because of the God of the Universe.
