Priorities Test

You can tell me the most important things in your life right now. You can vehemently declare your love for the Lord. You might explain how much you value your marriage or family. You could even tell me about your love of the Church and the work that it does. You may believe that you have built a life that is God-honoring in almost every way.

I think two things serve as proof of your claims: your watch and your wallet.

One way to test your priorities is to determine where you spend your time and money.

If I looked over your schedule, would I see that you have spent adequate time doing the things you claim are important to you? If I scrolled through your bank statement or credit card bill, would I see that your use of money supports your priorities?

Wherever your time and money goes is what you genuinely value, no matter how much you state something different.
