Written by Greg Ryan


Continued from page 1

Inrepparttar bible this principle can be illustrated by looking atrepparttar 148412 relationship between Jesus andrepparttar 148413 disciples. Jesus spent some time with all of them teaching and leading them, and then their were only two or three that were in his inner circle that he spent most of his time with that went out and taught others more. The point is, Jesus would not have been as effective if he tried to talk with everybody allrepparttar 148414 time so he prioritized his time and efforts with his priorities. His priority was to teachrepparttar 148415 disciples so they could teach others. Yes, Jesus had questions for God on top of struggles all through out his life. Yet, he sought afterrepparttar 148416 kingdom of God first and fought throughrepparttar 148417 small bumps of life.

If we look at each one of our lives right now we may find that there are similarities between our spiritual lives and our day-to-day life. Ask yourself, are you spending most of your time in less significant areas and not inrepparttar 148418 areas that line up with your priorities? Or in in another way ask, arerepparttar 148419 things I am doing everyday filling me up spiritually and giving me meaning in life? If not then look atrepparttar 148420 80/20 rule in your life. What priorities are you seeking first? Are they inrepparttar 148421 Important or are theyrepparttar 148422 urgent?

The amazing thing that occurs when keeping first things first is this. If you first make a list of your tasks and categorize them either I for important or U for urgent. Then focus all your energy onrepparttar 148423 ďIĒ list you will find that it will seem as thoughrepparttar 148424 Urgent tasks on your list will take care of them selves. The next thing you will realize is that you will have more time to devote to what matters most to you in your life and that will give your life more meaning and significance. Try this you will be amazed atrepparttar 148425 power our Lord.

Loving People in spite of it all!

Written by Greg Ryan


Continued from page 1

Jesus Christ is a great example to follow. Did Jesus die for us and loves us because of who we are? No! He died for us and continues to love us in spite of who we are. Even though we may disobey him or put him second best he still loves us. Even though at times we do not live up to his expectations, he realizes each one of us has things in our lives we could be better at. He knows we may continue to sin (Romans: 3:23) but heís not going to put us up on a shelf and find another one to love. He will continue to nuture, love and lead us closer to him. He sticks with us no matter what that is true love.

Letís all love our friends and close companions not because of what they bring torepparttar table of life or what they can do for us, but love them in spite of their areas that donít line up with our expectations. Donít take a chance and lose a close friend, or even mate because they didnít fit into your expectation box. Accept them, value them, and Love them in spite of it all, you may just find a diamond inrepparttar 148411 ruff. Jesus did!
