We all make grandiose claims about what we love the most, but, in reality, our decisions declare what we love every single day.
Many Christians claim that Jesus is their highest priority, but is He really?
Here is what A.W. Tozer says on the matter:
Tozer on the Choice
Millions call themselves by His name, it is true, and pay some token homage to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them.
Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who or what is above, and his true position will be exposed.
Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time.
Those other things will be exalted above.
However the man may protest, the proof is in the choice he makes day after day throughout his life.
