The new year gives us a renewed desire to set goals, which means getting our priorities in order.
Have you ever had so many things you “need” to do that you don’t get any of them done? It can seem overwhelming!
When you don’t know what to start on, let God’s Word help determine what priorities to put first in your life this year.
WHAT THE WORD SAYS:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… John 1:1-5
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well… Matt 6:33
The first of all the commandments is; love the Lord thy God… Mark 12:28-30
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people… 1 Timothy 2:1-2
“Honor your father and mother”—which is thefirst commandment with a promise… Ephesians 6:2-3
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations… Mark 13:10-11
