Making Priorities a Priority

"Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Matthew 6:10 

Recommended Reading
Deuteronomy 28:1-2
As helpful as children's literature is to teach 

reading, increase comprehension, and excite

 the imagination, it can skew the portrayal of

 a critical biblical concept: the nature of a kingdom. In fantasy 

tales, kingdoms are controlled from castles, ruled over by kings

 or queens, and defended by knights on horseback. But that is 

not an accurate picture of the kingdom of God.

When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, "Your

kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it

 is in heaven," He defined the kingdom of God. The kingdom of 

God is the place where God's will is done. That obviously 

includes heaven, and Jesus prayed that it would one day include 

earth -- which it will. The easiest way to see the kingdom of 

God extended on earth is for human beings to make God's 

priorities their priorities. When we act, think, and speak like 

God, we are manifesting His will in our presence. In that place. 

As you plan your day and your week, think about priorities. 

How closely are your priorities aligned to the priorities of God? 

Where God's will is done, His blessings follow.

We live by demands when we should live by priorities.
