When kids eat snacks all day, they usually don't have room for dinner. And the opposite is also true.
Sometimes we have our eye on dessert, but after a delicious meal we don't have room for it.
This is a great analogy for our spiritual needs in life.
Some things are like dessert - fine in moderation but bad when they are our main nutrition.
But when we seek God's Kingdom first, we're filled with the right things, and the extras are just that....extra.
Sometimes our schedule won't allow them, other times it will. Either way, we stay spiritually healthy because we've put our lives in proper order.
"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." Matthew 6:33 NLT
The key is what we "eat" first and most often.
