First Things First

Make honoring the Lord with your life your first priority, and trust Him to advance you in His time and in His way. Promoting ourselves will only result in His humbling us for our own sake. As Matt. 23:12 says, “And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

In our own strength, we will always seek to promote ourselves; but through an ever-increasing love relationship with Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit within us, we can begin to cultivate an attitude that always exalts and glorifies God. We will become willing to say “you first” to others, even though we live in a “me first” world.
