Setting priorities straight
Placing a priorities in life changes everything. It changes the view we give people, it categorizes our ethics, values and principles into different stages. Most importantly, it helps us take care what is most important; according to the life meaning wegive it.
First place is your spouse
Your spouse is your other half. You are not complete without him or her. With this being said, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. Genesis 1:27-28 Couples are made to complete each other. They are each other’s priorities.
Second place comes your children
Children came out of the female spouse with both male and female gender combined as one whole flesh. With this being said, “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. “( John 16:21) Children must be every parent’s priority; but only until they become adults. Children grow and move out; they can’t be number one forever.
Third place comes work
By taking care of the workplace, one takes care of the income; bringing food and shelter to the home; wjich is extremely important. The problem is when couples make this their first priority and their GOD. This is the main reason why couples divorce along with adultery.
Fourth place comes ministry
The fourth priority is ministry; just as hobbies and entertainment. ” Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” 2Timothy 2:15 Hobbies and entertainment can wait until the very last. It is only a way to stay productive. As far as ministries go; it is serving God, but it is more important to serve him in the spirit; which is done before loving your spouse or yourself. It doesn’t help if you serve in ministry when one is still fornicating or having fits with mom and dad.
