Unlimited: Put God First

Unlimited: Put God FirstSeek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33, NKJV).

 The Bible is full of the 80-20 principle. This principle says that 20 percent of what you do gives you 80 percent of the results. The Bible is continually stressing how we need to prioritise and see things with a true sense of proportion.

 A favourite word on the lips of Jesus was “first.” He said things like, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…. ” Or, “First bind the strong man….” Or, ”The first and great commandment… ”

 Jesus also had an eye for people who observed this priority principle. When everybody else was criticizing that poor woman who out of love’s store had anointed him, he said, “Mary has chosen that good thing which shall not be taken from her.” How did she come to do that? Jesus said on the same occasion, “But one thing is needful.”

Mary had a true sense of priorities. She made Jesus first. To Mary, worship was the essence of life.

 Let God be God. Either God matters tremendously or he doesn’t matter at all. If God be God, he must be put first, ever and always.

 God must be first in every choice. The worship of God must be seen as our first duty and the source of all our fruitfulness and joy. – Des Ford.

 Eli’s Reflection: Is there a difficult decision that you need to make, that perhaps you have been putting off? Take some time in a peaceful place to pray about it and make that decision by putting God first.

The things which God has prepared those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 # For this is the love of God that we keep his commandments. And His commandment s are not burdensome. 1 John 5:3 By this We have managed to put God first. I know of this Woman. Her father had a stroke and was paralyzed all the right side of his body. It was in one of the remote place in African, where by even stroke would be regarded as witch_crafts. So a neighbour came to her and told her that.she New of a witch doctor who would heal her father if she was to cut hair from her father and a little cloth of his. And some little money, the lady would go with this stuff to the w.doctor. This woman reply to the other lady. I love my father very much. I would do anything for my father, but I put God first. And God is here and he heard what you just told me. I can't do better than trusting God , and can not put any other god before him. I will put my father's life in my Heavenly Father's hands. Let us feel Gods presence in whatever we do and wherever we are Amen.
