First In Line

It is exciting to be first, and not having anyone to follow. In elementary school, it was exciting to be chosen as the line leader.

God’s perspective about the best position in line is different than ours.

Luke 13:30 says, “Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.” The more we grow in our faith, the more our perspective shifts.

Lysa Terkerust says, “Live from the abundant place that you are loved, and you won’t find yourself begging others for scraps of love.” God’s opinion of you won’t change. Everyone else is human, and will change opinions about things and people during their lifetime. God never changes.

He is where you go to determine your value.
