In reading a chapter entitled 'Faith in the Fast lane', my eyes were drawn to these words:
"Keep in mind that usually problems can wait a few minutes while you put first things first." - Blaine Smith
This is exactly the opposite of what we tend to do. When we face a difficult problem our human reaction is to sort it out before we take it to God. Blaine Smith challenges me to 'put God first' (i.e. pray about things) and then see how God helps to sort out the situation.
