Whatever His main thing is, will automatically be our main thing.

So what is the most important thing about God? Continue Reading…

most-important-thingWhat’s the MOST important thing about you?

How you look? Definitely not.

How ’bout who your parents are or how much money you make? Nope.

What about where you live or work or go to church? Uh-uh.

The most important thing about you cannot be measured by any natural means. We spend countless hours investing in all of these things but none of them is the most important thing about us. THE MOST important thing about you is, drum roll please…

You are.

I am.

To one extent or another, everyone is.
