First Things First

When your priorities are confused, don’t be surprised if you are, too! (Kenneth J. Brown, author)

What do I do next? What should I concentrate on today? When should I schedule my next appointment? These are questions we all face from time to time, and the question is how do we make our choices? It’s usually a question of convenience or our feelings at the moment of decision, but it ought to be on the basis of what is really most important in the long run.

Jesus: “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37-39).
