Daily Devotion: A Christian Has The Right Priorities

Bible Reading: Matthew 6:19-34

Key Verse: Verse 33 – “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Key Words: seek ye first the kingdom of God

Now, you can’t be any clearer than that. God comes first! When we fail to put God first, we show not only a lack of respect for God, we also show a lack of spiritual wisdom.

So let me ask, are your priorities straight?

A couple I heard about in Atlanta read that My Fair Lady was still playing on Broadway in New York City. They wanted to go so badly, so they bought their tickets months ahead of time and planned their vacation.

The long-awaited day came and they flew to New York City. They presented their tickets, walked in, and sat down in wonderful seats, seven rows from the front, near the orchestra.

To the man’s amazement, the entire place filled up except the seat right next to him. He was curious about that. At the intermission, he leaned over in conversation with the lady in the second seat away from him and commented how they had to wait so many months to get tickets to a performance. When there was such a demand for tickets, why would someone not come? Did she have any idea? She said, “Yes, as a matter of fact, these two seats are mine: this one and that one.” She explained further, “You see, that seat belonged to my husband, and he died.” The man said, “I’m…I’m terribly sorry. But couldn’t you have invited a friend to come with you?” Her answer was classic. She said, “No, they’re all at the funeral home right now.”

Let me encourage you to make sure God is the number one priority of your life.

What to do:

✞ Prioritize your life based upon: 1) that which is necessary, 2) that which is needy, and lastly, 3) that which is nice.
