Priorities are like flowers; they are best when properly arranged.
Has anyone ever told you to “arrange your priorities”? They’re really asking you to put the goals and events of your life in order of importance. Where should your priorities begin and end? Should they be unique to you? Should you establish short-term priorities, or should you take the more long-term view?
God has deliberately called you out of the ordinary activities of life to a higher level of living. He doesn’t want you to worry about your short-term personal needs (because He will provide them). Instead, He wants you to structure your life in a way that makes Him your highest priority. When you arrange your priorities in that fashion, then everything else will fall into its proper place. Can you say that you have made God your top priority? Does your daily schedule confirm or deny it?
No, O people, the Lord has already told you what is good, and this is what he requires: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
