But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
“Stop Making Sexcuses…”
We love to go retro these days. From cars to clothes, from music to makeup—retro is the way to go. But you can’t go retro without talking about time. And you can’t talk about time without thinking about priorities.
There seems to be a lot of hype about setting priorities, but God has already given us the blueprints on where we need to spend our time. It’s not about setting our priorities. It’s about agreeing with God on what our priorities already are.
Priorities are simply saying yes to the best. But for many of us, there is a huge gap between our priorities and our commitments. Instead of saying yes to the best, we say yes to the good or just good enough. And over time, the good crowds out the best.
Do you ever get to the end of your day and wonder, “Where did the time go? Did I accomplish anything I set out to do?” One of the best ways to ensure that you set your days on the right path is to spend some time with the Author of time.
This week, make it a point to spend some quiet, personal time with God. Give him the first few moments of each day. When you do, the gap between your priorities and commitments will begin to close and you will begin to see that God’s priorities will give you freedom.
Answer the following
- How do you determine your priorities?
- How well do you think your priorities line up with God’s priorities for your life?
- Do your current commitments support God’s priorities for you?
- What “good” commitments do you have in your life that you need to let go of in order to say “yes to the best”?
Commit to spending 5-10 minutes of each morning with God this week. Seek His guidance in aligning your priorities with His.
