Then I got thinking...maybe my thinking is all wrong. Maybe I need a priority check. Make that, Definitely, I need a priority check.
The question I need to ask myself at the end of each day:
Not ...did I get everything on my to-do list done today?
But ...was I obedient to the Lord in every way today?
22For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices:23But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. Jeremiah 7:22-23Priorities, priorities. Why is that so hard for me sometimes?
Here are some things we should all consider :-)
I'm pretty sure it's more important that I sit down and read my Bible and spend time with the Lord than to sit down and check my facebook to see what so-and-so is up to today.
I'm pretty sure it is more important that I read my baby stories about Jesus than read one of the many books I have on my to-read list.
I'm pretty sure it's more important that my husband comes home to a joyful and smiling wife and happy daughter rather than to a stressed out or grumpy wife and unhappy daughter who will pick up her mother's attitude throughout the day.
I'm pretty sure it's more important that I do tasks around the house with a spring in my step and joy in my heart than begrudgingly attempt to accomplish one more thing.
I'm pretty sure that the condition of my heart....not things...is more important.
