Write down three people and three things you'd miss if you went to live in another country.

READ

Luke 9:57-62

The people in this story hadn't thought about what it would mean to follow Jesus. The first had forgotten what Jesus' life was like (v. 58) and the second two were concerned more about family matters (v. 59, 61).

It's easy for things to get in the way of following Jesus.

How important are these things to you? Circle the number that best sums up how you feel.

Very Not at all
Family 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
School 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Friends 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
TV 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Jesus 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Money 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Jesus isn't saying that the people we love and the things we enjoy doing aren't important at all, but that he is the most important. He has to come first and, when he does, everything else will have the right amount of importance.

"If He is not Lord of all, He is NOT Lord at all."

PRAY

Ask Jesus to help you put him first in your life.
