Wrong Priorities

🙏🏿✝️🙏🏿Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬
      The Bible makes clear that God desires to bless His people. But He also reminds us that we cannot forget the foundational principles that are to govern our lives. These priorities are clear in the Law, where the  first commandment was, "You shall have no other gods before me". God is to be our highest priority. Jesus said, the first and greatest commandment was "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind". You love Him even though you have never seen Him. Though you do not see Him now, you trust Him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.
       In Isaiah's time, even today, many people had forgotten these priorities. They have lost perspective. Once "faithful," they have now become "an idolatrous harlot," willing to do anything to receive rewards. They gave up their purity, and lost sight of what was important. They have failed to focused on serving others, eternal values, or pleasing God. The only thing that mattered was temporary compensation.
      Many people today are like those harlots. They have the wrong priorities, focusing on temporary rewards and pleasure. They willfully ignore God's Word in favor of their own opinions and that of so called intellectuals that do not know God. Instead of being concerned about eternal things, and the needs of people all around them, they focus on themselves and their own interests. They do not care about the things of God. Right now what is important in your life? Are you maintaining Biblical standards? Are you concerned with pleasing God and keeping His Word? Or are you more interested in compensation and rewards? Are you moved by the needs of others? Are you really seeking first His Kingdom? Ask God to help you reveal the true condition of your heart. Do not compromise, but dedicate everything in your life to Him.  Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly My disciples if you remain faithful to My teachings. “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.” John‬ ‭8‬:‭31‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

What are and where do your priorities stand‼️✝️🙏🏿✝️
