First

Two important questions:

What is to be first and foremost above all else?

Is it the first and foremost thing with me in my life?

The answer to the first question.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
(Matthew 22:36-40 NIV)

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 NIV)

The word “first” is defined as “before everything else, most important.”

The second question is answered by each of us individually.

None of us will be perfect in our priorities and choices. But hopefully we are striving each and every day to allow God and His will to be uppermost in our mind. Doing so will, at times, keep us from doing wrong and, at other times correct us and bring us back to God’s will.
