Illustration of life that is God-centered

God is always in the center of your life.

Your Priority.

Our life must revolve only in Jesus Christ.

Consider a small Object. ex. a small piece of wood

Tie the object with a soft string, at least 1 ft in length, in such a way that you could hold the other end of the string and spin it in a round position.

The object will rotate , and the orbit is your hand.

The tendency is for the object to rotate in your hands. it go other way because the center of it is only your hand holding it.

Just like in the law of Physics, the Centrifugal Force, keep the object not to loose in your hand.

The same way our life:

we are the object (wood), our life is tied in Jesus. Life only rotates at its center, who is our God, the center of our life. It wont go anywhere because it is tied up, (the wood object is tied on the end with our hand as the center)

God must be the center of our life. We will only live this life for Him.
