Today's daily words of encouragement word is First: Do you remember when you were a child growing up and playing all sort of games with other children, how we always wanted to be first. A lot of times disagreements arose because everyone wanted to be first. Well the times hasn't really changed that much;because people still want to be first in line for everything. God created man first so I guess it's in our nature to want to be first. We are suppose to seek first the Kingdom of God and all things shall be added unto us. God tells us also to remove the beam from our own eye, before we can get the mote from our brothers eye. The scripture is telling us not to be hypercritical of others by judging them or their actions before we can get our own business and actions straighten out.
Being first in anything carries with it a responsibility; to be the best of all and do the best of all.Being first is an honor and a unique responsibility. So, beware of what ye ask for because you might get it.
