  1. I’d like to think that I show preference for others but I’m not always good at that. Still, I am a work in progress and, if I don’t do well today, there is always tomorrow! I can try harder and I can focus more on others, and I can be more the person that Jesus would want me to be!
    Change is challenging for me but I try to welcome it and accommodate myself to it. This is another area in which I can definitely improve.

  2. I would like to think that I show preference to others. I always look for a way to help people in need. I always look for a way to make a difference. In terms of change? The name of my blog is Play It By Ear, and so I think that I deal with change pretty well. My wife may have a different take on this, 🙂 But I think that this is a great post. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed day

  3. I’m trying to put my mother first. I would rather stay up in my apartment and do my own thing but I decided to take time to watch a few programs with her since she is by herself most of the day. So, it’s off to watch TV now.
    Thanks, K. Lee!
    Love your mid-week devotionals!

  4. I believe I show preference for others. I usually let others go first in the grocery store if they have less than me. And I have received the same from others.

    Unfortunately I hate change. I don’t take it well. Even makes me angry at times. I need to learn patience and to accept that sometimes things must change.

  5. I LOVE John Maxwell and I completely believe how to change our lives is in our daily activities, compounded over time. Change can be really hard for me… when I know something is about to change, like my son going to kindergarten in the fall, I started my “grieving process” in January! Today… I’m ok with him starting!

  6. As a mom, I think over time you naturally develop an ability to put others first. As my kids are getting older and starting to leave the nest, however, I can see it getting a bit harder to be so generous with my new-found “me time”!
    Love the devotionals…I have a lot of change coming down the pike in my life. Some good, some bad, gonna have to roll with it all, tho!

    I give preference and I try to help if I can. Like Trudy, I think about my parents and grandparents. I would wish for them to get help and respect when they need it and I am not with them.

  8. It is interesting for me that you ask how people deal with change. I use to think that I was good at it, but then one day someone mentioned on a blog post, that perhaps we deal with change well when we implement the change and we are happy about it. But what about when the change is imposed upon us and it is out of our control. So then I had to really think about how I deal with that kind of change. I do get stressed out, depending on the impact of the change. But looking back over the years, I realize that even what I viewed as “negative” changes, usually, somehow, had a positive outcome, and the change really was in my best interest 🙂

  9. I like the definition of Preference meaning we want to go first but we go second. I have been trying to do this more often lately. I find it actually makes me feel better than if I get to go first. Giving to others is one of the greatest things we can do for others and for ourselves.
