BIBLICAL POINT OF REFERENCE:
"Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, 'How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!'”
One word came to me during the Gospel reading today: priority. What is the number one priority in your life? Is it to protect and help your family? Is it to get a career and be able to support yourself? Is it to find your soulmate and start a family? None of those things are bad; in fact, if any of those are your number one priority, then I'd say you have a good head on your shoulders. But these are just earthy priorities. What should our actual, number-one priority be? God. Or better yet, finding a way to get to God - meaning making your way to Heaven. Lately, I've been finding a way to make room for all of my earthly priorities more than the ones God is calling me to; I find time for homework, watching TV, work, and hanging out with friends, yet I hardly make time to go and visit God in-between classes, go to weekly church events, or even just praying more. What does that say about my true priorities? Well, for starters, they're definitely a bit mixed up. But what I can do, what we can all do, to get back on the right track is fairly simple: LISTEN TO GOD.
So take up the challenge with me, my sisters: sort out your priorities, pray to the Lord for guidance, and listen to Him and what He wants from you on your earthly journey.
