"I die the King’s faithful servant, but God’s first" (St. Thomas Merton) Do we have our priorities in the same order? Is God first in my life or is there another in reality before God. Am I a business person first or a politician first or a sports fan first? Am I a people pleaser or God pleaser? Does faith supercede feelings and needs? Is the law of God higher than the civil law? Is life in and with Christ greater to me than life without Christ. Jesus asked: "For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" (Mk 8:36) Hopefully, one day we will be able to say: Though I die a citizen of this country, I am a citizen of heaven first. For my first and only Master is the Lord, my God.
