FIRST THING FIRST MATTHEW 6:33
“Putting first thing first means organizing and executing around your most important priorities. It is living and being driving by the principles you value most, not by the agendas and forces surrounding you.’’
DR. STEPHEN R. COVER The quote above is from one of the greatest thinkers of this century. It captures the thoughts on my mind as i pondered on our theme for this month “First thing first’’.
No doubt God is our number one first thing and that is why our theme for the year is “Putting God 1st’’. Immediately after this you must identify your other priorities and focus on them systematically. Herein lies the secret to enduring success.
This is the time to answer fundamental questions like: Why am i here? What is my purpose? What are my values? What are my strengths and weakness? I would like to suggest that you take out time to answer these questions and create a road map or strategic plan for your life.
This is required irrespective of your age. I fact the younger the better. You must come to that time in your life when you spend your best time, energy, resource on those that are most important to you.
I would like to counsel that you consider the following areas top priority; God, family, friends, money, other things. You must have noticed that money come last om my list. The reason for this is simple. When all is said and done, it’s the relationship that matter the most. I pray God will help you to learn to put first things first in Jesus name.
