Priorities: Are You Going Too Fast?

A number of years ago, a Navy jet fighter plain shot itself down over the deserts of Nevada while testing a new cannon mounted on its wing. The plane was flying at supersonic speeds but the cannon shells were subsonic. What hap¬pened was critical. The fighter actually ran into the shells it had fired seconds before. The jet was traveling too fast.

Sometimes we travel too fast for our own spiritual good. Here are some marks of moving so fast you are in danger of shooting yourself down.

• If there is little time to worship the Lord in the Church services.

• If you do not have time to read the Bible and pray.

• If you. live so fast you have no time to change your ways.

• If your children wonder if you are ever going to sit down for a while.

Don’t be guilty of traveling so fast with your life that you run past the sound of the Word of God. Be in the center of His will.
