A Question of Priorities
The answers are revealed not in what we say but in more practical ways: in how we spend our money, how we spend our time, and who or what gets our attention.
- If I spend 15 minutes in prayer each day and 5 hours watching television, that tells me all that I need to know about my priorities.
- If I put a dollar in the collection basket and spend ten dollars on lottery tickets, that is also a statement.
- If I come to God in prayer only when I need or want something, that is a reflection on our relationship: it’s not healthy!
The rich fool invested his time, money and attention in building bigger barns and providing more security for himself. His sudden death revealed that was not a good investment.
Every good thing that we have, every blessing that we receive comes from God. May we be good stewards of what we have received.
