The Christian’s main priority, before anything else, is to hear the revealed word of God. Hearing
God’s word allows us to know Him, to see His beauty, to become more like Him; nothing else
Ben, or as we call him “Mzee” (ma-zay), recognizes and appreciates the privilege of reading the
word of God. Whether it is his day off, before or after his shift or during down time- you can find

him sitting with this worn and ragged Bible, devouring God’s word.
So often, we don’t realize the true gift given to us and we allow so many things to distract us
and pull us away from what should be our top priority . David writes in Psalm 27 “Only one thing
I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of
my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple .”
Lord forgive us for not appreciating the privilege that most of us have been given, the
opportunity to read and hear Your word. May it come before all else , above all good things, may
we choose the ONE that is best!
