Max Lucado wrote an excellent short message a few years ago on the subject of “Heeding the Signals” the Lord sends into our daily lives. I want to expand on some of his points and challenge each of you to reflect upon the true priorities of life. Here are some God-given, time-tested truths that define the way we should live our lives as true followers of Jesus Christ. Follow them and your journey here on earth will be blessed. Ignore them at your own peril.

Love God with all your heart and love people.
Love God more than you fear hell.
Live before an audience of ONE. When no one is watching, live as if someone is.
Succeed at home first
Make major decisions in a cemetery
Pray twice as much as you worry or fret
The Lord has forgiven you; you’d be wise to do the same.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Honor God and obey his commands because this is all people must do”
