This weekend’s one thing: First things first.
Priscilla Shirer said it this way: “It’s an adage quickly spouted and often as quickly ignored because we don’t know what we should prioritize or we don’t like what’s first in line when we do.”
What you do first determines what comes next.
You have to first have a consistent bedtime if you want her to respect a curfew.
You have to first walk a mile if you want to run a marathon.
You have to first buy the groceries if you want to bake the cake.
You have to first require obedience at home if you want her to obey at school.
You have to first give God part of your morning if you want Him to bless your day.
