Main thing

We have arrived at the letter M for ABC WEDNESDAY and my entry is "THE MAIN THING".

A famous quote from Stephen Covey.

Do you struggle with keeping what is most important in your life your main focus?  I think all of us suffer somewhat with this.

And I don't think we only have one main thing either.  Our pastor has preached over the past 30 years with this emphasis.


In this order:

1.  God
2.  Spouse
3.  Children/grandchildren
4.  Local church
5.  Your work/retirement

I really try to live by this and make my life mean something, not go by everyday without a purpose. I have invested many hours attending to all of these principles.

I agree that it's important to focus on what matters the most to us. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

great priority list! Indiana had a personal car license plate a few years ago whose message was KIDS FIRST. As a teacher, I saw no harm in it, but our pastor explained that the husband (after God, of course) should come first in order to have a strong marriage, thus a strong family unit.

My main things are about the same as the ones you wrote down.
I also see my being responsible for the environment as a main object. Good post Ann!
have a most wonderful weekend!
