Priorities? Is God really #1?

God wants us to have eternal life with Him. We find in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Many of us desire eternal life with God, and yet we have no time in this life for God. The Bible plainly teaches that it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment, Heb. 9:27. Jesus spoke clearly that we must work the works of God now, John 9:4. We should stop and think, “Is God really our #1 priority?”

No Time For God

You’ve time to build houses, and in them dwell

And time to do business—to buy and to sell;

But none for repentance or deep earnest prayer;

To seek your salvation you’ve no time to spare.

You’ve time for earth’s pleasures, for frolic and fun,

For her glittering treasures, how quickly you run;

But care not to seek the fair mansion above,

The favor of God or the gift of His love.

You’ve time to take voyages over the sea,

And time to take in the world’s jubilee;

But soon your bright hopes will be lost in gloom

Of the cold, dark river of death and the tomb.

You’ve time to resort to the mountain and glen;

And time to gain knowledge from books and from men;

Yet no time to research for the wisdom of God,

But what of your soul when you’re under the sod?

For time will not linger when helpless you lie,

Staring death in the face, you will take time to die.

Then, what of the judgment—pause, think, I implore!

For time will be lost on eternity’s shore.
