Placing a priority in life changes everything. It changes the view we give people, it categorizes our ethics, values and principles into different stages and 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 parent’s priorities but only until they become adults. Children grow and move out; hey can’t be number one.
Third place comes work
By taking care of the workplace, one takes care of the income; bringing food and shelter to the home 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 the ministry
The fourth priority is the ministry just as hobbies and entertainments. ” 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
