Who deserves the supreme priority in our life?

Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.

Augustine of Hippo

During the teaching years of Jesus Christ (circa. AD 27-29), a wealthy young man came to him to find the way to eternal life (heaven). The young man knew well the commandments of God according to the Torah (holy book of Jews) and followed them sincerely. He wanted to figure out if there was anything else, he needed to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus told him to sell all his property and give it to the poor and to follow him. The young man considered his wealth superior to God and walked away sadly.

In general, most of us prefer to enjoy the security, status, and pleasure of money rather than seeking or trusting God. When everything goes well in life, no one wants to put God first, for we depend on our own strength and money. But when everything fails, people may consider God as the only remaining means to survival – a last resort. The Bible, on the other hand, urges all human beings to remember their Creator in the days of their youth. If we understand that God created human beings to live in relationship with Him for a definite purpose and plan, we will surely make serious efforts to seek God and His purpose in our lives.
