Thoughts Along the Way…
Our culture seems to project the priorities we should be about by bombarding us with marketing and social media influencers. Too many discover too late that the priorities they followed while listening to the world leave them empty in the end.
If you want to know what Jesus’ priorities are, look at what he did on a daily basis. We witness his priorities/God’s priorities by exploring the Gospels. If Christ’s Followers are to be Christ-like then Jesus’ priorities need to be our priorities. Real devotion to Jesus’ priorities requires constant attention, action, and reflection. When we train ourselves to think differently about the world and we begin to act differently, we will live Jesus’ priorities.
