Taking time off from work to attend church

Yes, you read that headline correctly:  I’m taking two days (Maundy Thursday and Good Friday) off from work next week so I can attend church services.  My husband is doing the same.   That’s how important worship is to us.  We’d rather give up some income than give up going to church.

Who or what is most important in your life?  If you say that God is, but spend one hour a week in church and don’t give God a second thought the rest of the week, then you are kidding  yourself.  Claiming that your family is most important, but then missing your kid’s birthday party because you’re on a business trip, or playing golf with friends, also says something about your true priorities.

Actions speak louder than words.  Many of us have noble ideas and good intentions, but often end up taking the path of least resistance instead of standing up for what really matters to us.  If your actions do not reflect your true values, what can you do to change that?
