ALL IN – Day 31 of 60!

Are you JCSG or GSCJ? It seems that in society our jobs and careers seem to dominate our attention. We schedule vacations around important events at work. We miss family functions because of work. Right after jobs it seems we focus on scheduling around our kids. Between getting them to school, practice, games, parties, events, programs, etc. that we’ve allowed to control their lives we fit in other things. Regretfully the other thing that falls next on most agendas are our spouses. After work and kids, we schedule them in. Finally, at the end of the day just before going to bed we say a prayer to God. If that sounds like you than you are JCSG – Job, Children, Spouse, God driven.

Problem is that God has called us to be just the opposite. Matthew 6:33 clearly states “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” G – God wants to be first in your life because you love him more than anything. In Ephesians 5:22 – 6:12 God sets out the priority of our other relationships. He first deals with S – spouses, next C – children and finally, J – jobs or employment relationships.

The only way to be ALL IN is if you are GSJP. Are you?

    I would think the first thing you need to do in order to get to GSCJ status is to change your whole thought process. First by the renewing of the mind daily or for that matter every hour because some people need that. When you have thought with a worldly mind for so long it becomes habit and habits are not always easy to break. So therefore when you think with a spiritual mind things begins to tranform in your life. The problem is when would stepping back from the world and letting God come into play or will it be too late…?
