Saturday Night – And The #1 Priority Is….
It’s Saturday night, and what are YOU doing? Before you answer that…..
When I used to be in the world, and even my first few years in the Lord – I would go out to concerts on Saturday nights, and I would come home SO late. Then I would be walking into church the next morning zonked as all heck, and I would NOT be very effective (did I tell you that I serve at church? 😀 )
Well after a few years, God FINALLY got a hold of me. These days, I spend my Saturday nights at home, and on the computer most of the time. (As I’m typing this, I also got the Yankee game on – God ain’t done with me yet).
But the BIGGEST lesson that I learned my first few years was this: God gotta be first place in ALL and over ALL. Yes, even in what we do with our Saturday nights. And yes, sometimes after dinner, I’ll buy stuff at CVS or buy a soda at the luncheonette. I can’t even remember the last time that I went to a rock and roll concert (or ANY concert, for that matter) – it’s been THAT long!
What I Did Right After Dinner:
- I called my pastor to discuss tomorrow’s service (VERY important!); AND
- My clothes and my bag are already prepared for tomorrow morning!
And that second thing I did – preparing my stuff for the next day – SO important! Not just for church, but in life in general. I find that if I prepare my things for the next day, it makes the next morning SO much more peaceful and calm (goodness knows I could use that)!
So what are YOU doing tonight? And what SHOULD you be doing? I already did it – what about you? Remember to put God first, and also remember….
GOD IS IN ALL, AND HE IS ALL!
