Passion and Priorities

“Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.” –Hebbel

Our lives are driven by our passions.

Whatever fires us up determines how we will mold and shape our choices every day and will ultimately determine how our very lives are structured. Ultimately, what drives us becomes what we derive meaning and purpose for life.

Some people claim they are not passionate about anything. In reality, they are passionately apathetic. The Bible calls such people lazy and has quite a bit to say on the subject of laziness.

Our whole lives are wrapped around what we are passionate about.

Passions can and often do conflict. It is only when passions conflict that we find out what is dearest to us in which one we choose over the other one. We call the ordering of passions our priorities. Priorities change depending on circumstances, groups, and time.

God wants to be our number one priority, our passion.

How can we say we are passionate about God if other passions regularly win out?

How can we claim to be passionate about God when we can never seem to make time for Him?

What are you passionate about?

To whom also He showed himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
Acts 1:3
