I don’t know about you, but when I don’t give God my first and make Him most important in my life, things get broken, cracked, lost, and destroyed! Just like in our episode, Leftovers! We had people perform a crazy juggling act to keep a few objects in their place. (We have a thing for eggs, so of course we had to throw one into this challenge!)
It was difficult to keep things like basketballs from rolling away and jars from smashing, and in the end, everyone ended up losing control of everything!
This is an illustration to show how we try to control our own lives. For me, homework, friends, work and healthy living were so important to me that I forgot to seek God before I tried to hold it all together! But Jesus says in Matthew 6:33, “Seek first the Kingdom of God, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
God is the master at handling any situation. He’s been doing it for thousands of years. And when I make him my single, number one priority, my situations work out for the best!
The people in the challenge understood that it was hard to keep everything going on their own, and I definitely know that we are made to follow fast after God before everything else!
