What Is More Important Than God?

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Is anything in your life more important than God? Your family? A hobby? City Life? Television? Fame? Sports activity? Only you can honestly answer this question. There is a verse in Matthew 6:31 that says "For where your treasure is there will your heart be also." Often times looking at a person's checkbook register will tell where their heart is. Think about that for a moment. Do you give to things of the Lord at all and if you do is it because you desire too or feel obligated. Where is your heart?

 This is not saying we can not like and enjoy other things but if they are all consuming and take you away from things of the Lord perhaps they need to be thought out. Sure you love your family but we are not to love family more than God. If you love God deeply you will truly love your family in the proper way as well.

Ask yourself what you truly treasure and what you truly desire to do. Make sure spending time alone with God and having fellowship is in there somewhere. If it is not perhaps it is time to rethink your priorities and get a 'heart transplant'.

PRAYER: Lord I do love you. I do not ever want to let other things rule my life. I want you in the center and do not want to simply say it but let it be evident to those around me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
