This Summer for the Vacation Bible Schools that we taught we used the story of George Mueller as our Missionary Story. He is an extremely great example of what priorities should really look like in a Christian’s life. So many people today that claim to be a follower of Christ certainly don’t show it by the way that they busy themselves with so many things that do not build the Kingdom of God or strengthen their relationship with Him in any way. In one of my studies on George Mueller I came across this article…
“George Mueller, after having read the Bible through one hundred times with increasing delight, made this statement: "I look upon it as a lost day when I have not had a good time over the Word of God. Friends often say, 'I have so much to do, so many people to see, I cannot find time for Scripture study.' Perhaps there are not many who have more to do than I.
For more than half a century I have never known one day when I had not more business than I could get through. For 4 years I have had annually about 30,000 letters, and most of these have passed through my own hands.
"Then, as pastor of a church with 1,200 believers, great has been by care. Besides, I have had charge of five immense orphanages; also, at my publishing depot, the printing and circulating of millions of tracts, books, and Bibles; but I have always made it a rule never to begin work until I have had a good season with God and His Word. The blessing I have received has been wonderful."
Is your relationship with God and things of His Kingdom truly a priority in your life or are the things of this world that don’t matter?
