A man went to the Super Bowl. He could not afford the great seats so he bought the cheaper seats relatively speaking and he was in the nosebleed section, even though his ticket had cost $350.00. The man noticed something as he looked through his binoculars, he saw that down on the 50-yard line was an empty seat. “I can’t stand this! I’m going to go down there and see if I can get that empty seat.” He made his way down there. It took him past half time to get to the seat because he had to travel so far. He got down there walked over to the seat and said, “Sir, is there anyone sitting in the seat?” He replied, “You can sit here the seat is available. My wife and I would go to the Super Bowl every year, but my wife recently died and so this seat is available.” Then it dawned on the man, as he started thinking to himself, “Your wife recently died, don’t you have some relatives or friends that you could have brought with you to bring to the game and sit in the seat?” The man responded: “Yes but they are all at the funeral.” You see that man had his priorities confused…What is the most important thing to you?

Genesis 25:31-33 (NKJV)
But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.” And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?” Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.” So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

Then another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”
James 4:1-3 (NKJV)
Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
