Life is busy and families have every hour of every day filled with many good things. As we love God first, there must be a sense of His Lordship within our daily schedules. How do we know we are to be doing all the things that our work places, our children’s schools, our local municipalities and our local churches require of us? How did Jesus know what to prioritize with only three and one half years to accomplish His Father’s mission for Him? Let me pass on to you a few secrets from the life of Jesus in balancing life’s many priorities.
First, Jesus knew who He was and what He was called to. (John 8: 12-14)) Second, He heard and obeyed His Father’s voice. (John 8: 28-29) Third, He rested, took breaks and had fun. (Matthew 13:1; Mark 1:35; John 2:1-2) And lastly, He never lost His compassion for mankind. (Mark 9: 35-36) Meditate on the above scriptures and ask your heavenly Father how to maintain a similar balance in your life and marriage.
