The Right Priorities
By:  Rick Boxx

November 2, 2010


My wife and I recently rented the mini-series, "Roots: The Next Generation" by Alex Haley. In this autobiographical story, Mr. Haley became so consumed by his calling as an author, that he ignored his family.


He destroyed his marriage and another relationship, due to his obsession with his work. On one occasion, he completely missed Christmas with his family, not even calling them to explain! In the series, Mr. Haley never expressed remorse. Instead, the series glorified his persistent pursuit of becoming a famous author.


1 Timothy 5:8 teaches, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."


Our work is important to God, but caring for our family comes first.
