I went to a funeral today and there is something about being at a funeral that makes you check your priorities. It is easy for me to repeat the almost cliche' list of priorities...
We can quote scripture...
Matthew 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Matthew 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
But, it is important to reevaluate your priorities and make sure that they are where they should be. If you are using a compass and are just off a small percentage then you will miss your destination by a large distance, but if you evaluate your location periodically then you will remain on target.
Our priorities need to be constantly evaluated so that we do not become off target for we will miss our destination and that is heaven.
