What matters most?

Re: Verse reading–2 Chronicles 20:1-4, 13-15; Matthew 6:16-18; Acts 13:1-3 (day one)
“Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah.”  (2 Chronicles 20:3)  It is a law of life.  Everything is not equally important.  All of us worth-ship some things and, therefore, not others.  What matters most to you?  The answer may not be apparent until a choice comes.  Question–when you really need to concentrate on spiritual matters, can you clear your schedule and find the time to “be still and know that I am God.”  Or, is your pattern of anxious seeking so unbreakable that you cannot clear your schedule (from meals or creature comforts) to seek God?  We focus this week on fasting.  Unfamiliar to some in a modern world, it still reflects the value structure of Jesus.  “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)  Hearing from God matters more than another meal!
