Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; Then all these things will be added unto you." ~Matthew 6:33Truly if we set our priorities...God being number one....everything will just fit.
Step 1: Fill a jar with walnuts
Step 2: Pour rice into the jar so it fits between the nooks and empty spaces between the walnuts.
Explain to your observers (or yourself if that's the case) that the walnuts represent God, Bible reading, prayer, etc. The rice represents the other stuff: housework, errands, to do lists, leisure, recreation, t.v., Facebook (did I hit a nerve there?), etc. If you place God first, then all the other stuff fits into place.
Step 3: Now empty the contents of the jar into a large bowl.
Step 4: Pour the rice into the jar first.
Step 5: Now squeeze the walnuts in.
So, if you put the other stuff in first and leave God out or try to squeeze Him in as an after thought, what happens?
I won't tell you.
I'll let you figure it out on your own.
Better put walnuts and rice on your shopping list.
And schedule time with the Lord at the top of your priority list.
