FIRST THINGS FIRST
“For many walk . . . who mind earthly things!” [Phil 3:18,19]
Which disturbs you most? Meditate and give yourself an honest answer… A soul lost in hell, or a scratch on your new car? Your missing the worship service, or missing a day’s work? Sermon ten minutes too long, or lunch a half hour late? The church not growing, or the garden not growing? Your Bible being unopened, or your newspaper unread? The contributions decreasing, or your income decreasing?
Your family late for worship, or late for school and work? The church work being neglected, or your housework being neglected? Missing a midweek service, or missing your favorite TV program? Low attendance at a worship service, or low attendance at your party?
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. [Matt 6:33]
