First, Center, All

First, Center, All

Where does your source of security, self-worth, and wisdom lie? Over and over, Scripture warns us that this world we live in is temporary, fleeting. We are cautioned that riches are deceptive and that the longing for power and prestige does not reflect the values of God’s kingdom. Jesus calls us to set our eyes on the cross, to work for treasure that is stored for us in heaven, to not be so busy trying to make a life here that we lose ourselves in the process. Where does your source of security, self-worth, and wisdom lie?

Jesus said, “This is how you should pray: “Father, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. Give us each day the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation.”—Luke 11:2-4 NLT

Prayer: Father, today, we humbly join Jesus in making You the first, the center, the all of our lives, as He did. Amen.
