Jesus on Lifestyle

PEOPLE ARE A PRIORITY FOR GOD.

People were made to be loved, and things were made to be used. But often we get this confused, and many of the world’s problems are caused because we love things and use people.

The world is constantly trying to seduce us to make things, money, accomplishments, and comfort the priorities of our lives. And we have all worshipped these things to varying extents by giving them an inordinate place in our lives.

So once again Jesus challenges us to rethink everything surrounding the way we live.

You have heard it said that the best things in life are not things. So what are the best things in life? What are the best things in your life right now? And what are the best things that are not in your life yet because you don’t even know that they should be?
