Setting priorities straight

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

  1. Setting priorities is very important as it gives structure and becomes a tool to successful living.  People, however,  do have different goals for setting priorities so they would want to list whatever is most important them.

    What could be considered my priority would not necessarily  be another person’s priority and therefore, i believe that setting priorities is considered to be individualistic.

  2. HI, I love the fact that you pointed out the importance of ministry. A lot of people put their pleasures on the fourth spot and never care about the ministry and working for God, so I personally think this is an essential aspect. Also, I know many put their work on the first position, thus neglecting their family, relatives, passions and even the ministry. I will try to focus on the right order, so thanks for this great article, it was really helpful!

  3. Hi Linda, thanks a lot for this post, it really made me realize how I should set my priorities. I know many women consider their children their priority, which is normal when they’re really young and need to be cared for. But once they grow up, their mothers still consider them their priority and sometimes neglect their husband and even their work. I think it’s essential to learn how we should set up our priorities in the right manner.
