Top priority

It's way better to be poor while living a life characterized by honesty and justice than to be rich while living a life characterized by dishonesty and injustice. ~ Proverbs 16:8 (ABP)

Don’t run roughshod over the concerns of your brothers and sisters. Their concerns are God’s concerns, and he will take care of them. ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:6a (MSG)

In God's eyes treating people right is a top priority. 
Lord, thank you for looking out for me. 
For me, though, it's nice when justice happens for others but there are so many other priorities in my life. I'm not as passionate about justice as you. Again, I am asking you to help me reset my priorities so that they are aligned with your passions. I doubt I will ever have a lot of money but I expect that you will make me rich in other ways. Amen.
