A couple of weeks ago I was on the campus of our local high school for an event that was open to the public. Before the program started, a student asked me enthusiastically, “Are you ready for tomorrow?” Seeing the puzzled look on my face, he continued, “It’s opening day of deer season!”
I had to confess to him that I didn’t hunt, and I wished him well in his endeavors. He seemed a bit let down that I didn’t share his enthusiasm for hunting.
This just goes to show that different people have different priorities. It may disappoint us when people don’t share our enthusiasm for Jesus and his church. Perhaps we can win them over some day. Until then, let us keep our own priorities in order.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”—Matthew 6:33
