My kids are working hard. Their studies keep them at their desks all day long. Granted, they could improve in the way they spend their precious time (couldn’t we all?) but the truth is, they have a lot to do in order to be ready for seminar on Tuesday.
Today I reminded them the necessity of putting first things first. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Matt.6:33. Poor kids, they seem weary of working at their desks, and the teens find it hard to get up in the morning–for what? More of the same. But regardless of the urgent need to start their work for the day, their soul’s hunger must be fed first. When that happens, the rest takes its proper place.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest…” I am a poor cook; I don’t do soul-food. I can only comfort them so far. What they really need is to eat at His table, daily.
Reminds me of what Maurice Eastwick coined in a sermon once: “The main thing, is that the main thing, is the Main Thing . . . ”
How true. March forward, sister!
