Life is busy isn’t it? We all have so many different responsibilities and different things that are vying for our attention. We find ourselves often running from one thing to the next. But while life is busy, ultimately we really all have time for things that we consider to be important.
For instance, if we place a high value on physical fitness, then we are going to find the time to exercise. It may mean that something else has to go, but we will find the time to run, or bike, or swim or whatever else we do. Each of us make choices every day about what to spend our time doing.
This blog is even an example. For some reason you chose to take the time to read this blog. You didn’t need to do it. Maybe right now you are wishing you didn’t. Anyway, it was a choice, and at least to some extent you put reading this blog as a priority over other things you could have done with this time.
In the same way, I make the choice to put a priority on writing this blog. Unfortunately the blog has not made it to the top of the priority list the last couple of weeks. Things have been a little extra busy around here. But regardless of how busy I feel, basically it means that I put a higher priority on the other things I had to do over the last couple of weeks, and this blog was a casualty of those choices.
Anyway, that leads me to my point. We all have the time for the things we choose to put a priority on. And the question is, are we making the right choices? Are we putting the right priorities on the right things? This Sunday, I will be talking about putting a priority on our relationship with God. Of course, in order to hear the sermon, you are going to have to put a priority on coming to The River, 9:30 Sunday morning at 2510 Chaska Blvd. Hope to see you there!
