The Limit of Priorities
To be human means we have priorities. We are not designed to be everywhere, to do everything, or to help everyone. We must be willing to say "no" to many things. We must be willing to prioritize some relationships over others. Jesus lived with the limit of priorities. He prioritized his relationship with his Heavenly Father above all else. He even prioritized his relationships with Peter, James, and John above the other nine disciples. He prioritized his relationships with all twelve disciples above other people. He didn’t visit every town or meet every person, but he prioritized the places he went and the people he met. He prioritized rest even when there was much work he could do. He prioritized prayer even when people wanted him to help. As we continue our Journey with Jesus, we’ll be looking to Jesus to understand what it means to be human, to function as we were designed, by embracing the limit of priorities.
