When your priorities are confused, don’t be surprised if you are, too! (Author uncertain)
We all have a standard of values and priorities, and we live by them, often unconsciously. When we forget or confuse them, we may find ourselves way off track, wondering how we got there. It’s good practice to routinely reconsider—maybe even reorder—your priorities so you are always living up to the purposes you have established for your life.
Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts (1 Thessalonians 2:4).
