First Things First - January 10th - March 13th

First Things First
 
The turning of the calendar from one year to the next seems to give incentive for new goals, for examination, and for looking again at the priorities of our lives.
How many of you begin exercise or diet plans, restructure your finances, or try to reset your attitudes at home or work? Or maybe you’ve thought about re-shifting your time to paths that lead to a deeper experience of life?
I can’t think of a more qualified person to help us with this than Jesus- the author of life and the master of wisdom. He is the One who came to teach us and show us how to have a full and flourishing existence (John 10:10)
So we’re spending the first quarter of 2016 learning from Jesus what is most important in life. In short, what things matter most, and how can they become first in our lives so that we can flourish as human beings?
 
The Principle of Priority states (a) you must know the difference between what is urgent and what is important, and (b) you must do what’s important first.
 
Or, as Jesus himself taught in the second half of Matthew 6, the things that matter most must never be at the mercy of anything else. First things should be desired first.
