“33But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” –Matt 6:33 NASB
If you’re like most people, this time of year is a very busy time. Children are back in school, which means parent-teacher conferences, band rehearsals, soccer practice, track meets, football games, and a myriad of other responsibilities. Amid all the endless running, we still need to clean the house, mow the lawn, do the laundry and pay a vast amount of bills.
And this, being the tip of the proverbial iceberg, will usher us into an even more hectic holiday season with more rat-races, running and responsibilities. So how do we do it all? Where do we begin? When it comes time to pare down our schedules to a more manageable timeline, one of the first things we sacrifice is usually our time with the Lord. Either we skip our daily devotions thinking that we can double-up the next day, or we justify not going to church saying something like, “God understands that I’m busy”.
Looking at the above verse, Christ tells us that our priorities are off. We need to seek God’s kingdom and righteousness first. This doesn’t mean that our daily devotions make us immune from our responsibilities or problems, but it does give us better coping skills. Taking the time to do the things we know God wants us to do helps us set a Christ-like example for our children to follow. In so doing, we also discover that our priorities fall into God’s order.
Heavenly Father, help us to make you a priority in all we do. Thank you for your son Jesus for His sacrifice; in His name, amen.
It has become evident during the expansion process that the staff and volunteers of the City Mission will need to remain flexible and creative with space and resources in order to meet the ever-changing needs with which they are presented. These challenges strengthen resolve and encourage teamwork amongst directors, staff, volunteers and donors. It is often necessary during these times to look to the past for answers: how were problems dealt with during past expansion? how did the Mission operate during strained circumstances? It is during these moments of reflection that we are reminded of the 'Mission' that was first embarked on and encouraged to continue to carry out that vision today. The history of the Mission is as significant as its future. History provides evidence of growth, steadfastness, and direction. As we look forward to the completion of the Mission's current expansion in late 2015, it is advantageous to spend some moments in contemplation of significant past events. Read more...
