I’ve Got to Put First Things First

What if I could be perfect, correctly answer every hard question in life and have life work out exactly the way I want? Would that be great or what? Actually it wouldn’t. In fact, it would be a disaster because it would reduce God to being my ‘genie in a bottle’ whose job is to give me what I want when I want it. If I really want to experience how much God loves me, heals me and longs for me to thrive, I’ve got to put first things first.
