Every once-in-a-while, you'll here a phrase on television or even hear someone say this is real life. I can't really relate to it, but people call it "moving things around." Let me try to explain what this means. Someone is required to pay out a lot of money, in order to pay a debt, to handle an emergency, or to make an investment. They say, "I don't have that kind of money readily available to me. I'll have to move some things around, and it may take a little time."

What they are talking about is having money invested in other places, like in savings, in investments in the stock market, in a certificate of deposit, or something like that. They have to move that money from the several places where it is, in order to be able to use it for the needed purpose.

Most of us can't relate to having much money to "move around." However, we can think about moving things around in relation to time and priorities. We have all heard the old saying, "You need to 'make time' for that. It's important." The problem is that you can't "make" time. There are only 24 hours in a day. You can't "make" any more, but you can "move things around."

When it comes to our walk with the Lord, many of us need to "move some things around." In reference to our personal devotional time, many people say that they don't "have time." This is also said about spending time with God's people for worship and fellowship or said about finding opportunities to serve the Lord in ministry.

We generally move things around to accommodate our priorities.
The truth is that we generally move things around to accommodate those priorities that are important to us. In the future, I would hope and pray that we will "move things around" in order to do those things that are really important to the Lord!

Jesus said, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you" (Matthew 6:33 NKJV).
