Detox Your Priorities

Here's a brand-new week in front of us. All of these blank, beautiful days God has blessed us with are just begging to be filled with chores and activities and worship. There are so many ways we can spend the time we've been given, and the start of the week always holds so many opportunities.

So how will you decide how to prioritize all of those chores and activities and worship? When you run out of time at the end of the day, will you be pleased with what you chose to do? How are you to make wise decisions about your priorities?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

Scripture is clear: the things of God come first, and everything else will be handled for you. When you're planning and prioritizing, prayer, Bible study and church come before all else. Not only do they start your day in the right frame of mind, but you're showing love and devotion to the Lord. While the rest of your schedule won't magically fall into place, your priorities will be off to the perfect start.

Many times we see the busyness of the day and not those times with God that help us through the day. We take our eyes off the Lord and put them on everything we think just has to be accomplished. Then we're just filling time and not worshiping God with every breath.

What do you have planned for today? What's on the schedule for the rest of the week already? Do your plans put God first and others second? We probably all need to weed out some "must-haves" from our priorities, because they really aren't a priority in God's eyes.

Yes, there are many things that need to be done and many people to love and interact with. There are places to go and people to see, but so much of what we do is self-imposed and not God-inspired. Detox your priorities by weeding out anything that isn't essential and keep those things God would be ultimately pleased with. You might find that you've got time to spare and energy you didn't know you had! It's all about priorities and understanding what has eternal importance.
