What's Important To You?   Monday, September 30, 2002

There I was. I was working night watch at 11:06 pm...and thoroughly 

enjoying it! Actually last Friday evening, (or very close to Saturday 

morning), I was sitting in the chapel at our video campfire and thinking, 

"I wouldn't want to be any place else in the world right now". Why? 

was listening to 5th and 6th graders tell how they came to know Jesus as 


I thought of activities that other people might be doing at that moment. 

Some were drinking at a bar. Some were out seeing a flick. Some were 

shopping. Some were just chillin' at home watching the ole tube. But I 

wouldn't have traded that moment for any of those things or anything 


You see, I was doing what God had called me to do. And hearing these 

kids talk about how they loved Jesus was icing on the cake for me! It 

was priceless. 

What's important to you? Are you enjoying a friendship with Jesus or 

just existing day by day? Think about it and don't settle for anything 

less than an intimate friendship with your Creator! 

Take some time this week and think about what is important to you 


May Jesus be as important to you 

as you are to Him!
