Lies We Believe About Priorities: A Recap

This last section was the shortest one yet, but took me the longest to get through... sorry 'bout that. Soooo sleepy lately. I guess I have a good reason though. ;) Here's a quick recap on the last three lies we've covered from p. 61-62 of the companion guide to Lies Women Believe:

Luke 10:38-42

Job 23:12

1 Timothy 5:9-10

It is so easy to lose sight of what our true priorities ought to be. In a world where the serve-yourself-first mentality is rampant, it is nearly impossible to refocus our lives into the image that God intended the family to portray. We serve and give out of whatever is left of our time and money and resources AFTER we have devoted what we deem to be sufficient time and attention to the career of our choice, the relationships of our choice, the activities of our choice... and if there is anything left, we think we are so generous when we "give" our family and the rest of the world the meager scraps that are left over. This is so upside down! Christ came not to be served but to serve. What makes us think we are owed anything more than that same life of servitude? Spend time with the God who created you, knows you inside and out, and loves you anyways... ask HIM to order your life... ask HIM to cultivate within you a heart set on HIS priorities instead of yours... and see how high He takes you.
