What's Really Important?

I think deep down we all know what is really important, but we tend to lose sight easily. We can't turn on the TV without seeing a ridiculous, amazing looking person try to sell us something that will make us thinner, prettier, or richer. We think that only if we were thinner, prettier, and richer life would be more fulfilling and easier. If we are over weight, we don't keep up with the latest fashion, and broke as a joke, then our life must be pretty worthless, right? Absolutely not! 
So what is really important? Relationships. A relationship with Jesus. A relationship with your husband and children. A relationship with your family and friends. That is what really is important. 
I lose sight so easily and then God reminds me... Life is not how to get what you want. Most of the situations in your life turn out the way you never expected them to and what really matters in the end is relationships with people you love. That is what really matters.... your spouse, your children, your family, your friends. Not looks, not material things... it's loving one another. 

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34 

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
