Jesus had this radical notion that we should put first things first.
Hmmm. What’s first on your list? Who’s first on your list? If you’re honest, really honest with yourself, what’s first for you?
Someone suggested that you can tell what’s first in your life by asking: What do I think about the most?
This can be a troubling self-assessment.
Jesus, who was very good about getting to the heart of a matter, omce responded to a question by observing matter-of-factly that the first, most important thing in life is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
Love God??? Okay. But how? This is where we’re going this weekend. Right now, on Friday afternoon, I’m up to my elbows in what I call a “how-do-I-do-that” message.
