If I asked you to write a list of things that are important to you, what would you write? You might include things like family, friends, being happy, getting good grades, being good at sport, money, having a boyfriend, your pet dog, music, chocolate... Paul says that everything is nothing compared to knowing Jesus. He's not saying that we can't enjoy those other things, we just need to put Jesus first. He should be everything to us - we should talk to him, worship him, think about him and study his word every day. In the end, none of the other things will matter, just whether we loved Jesus.
CHALLENGE: Are there people or things in your life that are more important to you than Jesus? Pray that he will help you to put him first.
