Priorities for Success

Written about in the post Our Priorities are Bible characters who are good examples to follow and those that provide bad examples. Abraham was a man who took his relationship with God serious and in turn was blessed. His grandson Esau on the other hand traded his inheritance for a dish of stew. He only looked at what he wanted in the short term.

The lesson for us is to make decisions based on long term success rather than short term desires and to follow God’s plan for our life; being a part of His team. Today I have a video to give some motivation with A Pep Talk from Kid President to You.

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. – Proverbs 12:20

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
