  • Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-9

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
I believe I am significant because of my position as a child of God (Chapter 5), SO…

I focus on God and his PRIORITIES for my life.

Key Question: How do I keep my focus on Jesus amidst

DISTRACTIONS?

CALLING: A strong urge toward a particular way of life.

VOCATION: A person’s calling, especially regarded as particularly worthy and requiring great dedication.

“Consider your place in life…” (sitz im leben)
“…that it may go well” (Deut. 6).

Key Application:

  1. Daily lay your CALENDAR and decisions before God for direction.
  2. Make decisions based on Christian values. RELATIONSHIPS always trump things.
  3. Learn to say NO.

“No one can serve two masters!” –Jesus
