John Wanamaker was an amazing man. Many people in Philadelphia know him today for the store that bears his name: Wanamakers. But John Wanamaker was also a Postmaster General for many years, and he founded a Sunday school that ultimately had four thousand scholars attending it.
Someone once asked him, How do you find the time to run your Sunday school in addition to your business and other obligations?
Wanamaker replied without hesitation, Why, the Sunday school is my business! All the other things are just things. Forty-five years ago I decided that Gods promise was sure: Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matt. 6:33)
Is regular church attendance a priority for you?
What about time spent in prayer, reading Scripture, and reflecting on Gods Word?
What about participation in a ministry outreach, a Bible study, or prayer group fellowship?
Ask yourself today, What really is my business?
