Making the First Thing the First Thing
“Who can understand his errors? Cleanse Thou me from secret faults.” Psalm 19:12
I believe in church attendance, but if your relationship with the Lord and with others is suffering, then you need to stay at home and get on your face before God.
Sometimes a businessman will get very prosperous in his business—and at first it seems a good thing. He tells his wife, “Honey, you know how I couldn’t give you much when we got married? Well, now I can.” But soon the pursuit of a nice home and nice things consume him. A sadness descends upon his wife and children, and they lament, “Oh, Daddy….Oh, husband…what we would give to just have you spend time with us.”
What tragedy it would be if what you do for Jesus keeps you from Jesus. Stop the cycle today. If you know you’re a workaholic, stop it. If you know your walk is far from God, get it right.
