In the scramble to get ahead way too many of us forget the most important rule of a truely successful life: Keep God first.
I learned a long time ago that you can work your heart out and get nowhere but worn out. When our relationship with God is our first priority He teaches us to work smarter rather than harder.
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 KJV
Remember to keep your priorities straight.
Keep God first.
Live according to righteousness.
Reap the benefits.
