Bible Study on Priorities (Free)

This 4-part Bible study on priorities will help your students recognize what they prioritize in their lives, then help them learn how to prioritize what’s most important.

The hours in your day are the currency of your life. It’s uncomfortably easy to put off today what we could do tomorrow, but then tomorrow comes, and we put it off again. Ultimately, this starts an overwhelming cycle. Procrastination prevents you from doing the things that really matter. So how do we stop procrastinating and plug into our greater purpose?


Part 1: How to Stop Procrastinating

Procrastination reveals misplaced priorities. It’s one of the devil’s favorite tools for tricking God’s people. When you find yourself procrastinating, you are ultimately putting a life-changing purpose that God has given you on hold.  God’s plan for you is not procrastination — it’s obedience. 

Scripture: John 14: 23-24 

Part 2: How do you Spend your Time?

As you take an inventory of your priorities, ask yourself this question. How do you spend your time? Your calendar reveals your core values. If you spend a lot of time with your friends, you value relationships. If you spend a lot of time trying to make as much money as possible, then you value wealth. Your daily practices reveal your priorities.

Scripture: Colossians 2:23-24 

Part 3: How do you Spend your Money?

In the Old Testament (Malachi 3:6-10), God commanded His people to give ten percent of their income back to the church. This isn’t because God wants to take money from your bank account; it’s because He wants to take greed out of your heart. Generosity proves that God is our top priority. Greed is a curse, and generosity is the cure.  

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 

Part 4: Who do you Spend your Time with?

Good friends spur you on by keeping you accountable, challenging you on your sin, praying with you, and talking about God with you. The right friends are a crucial ingredient in growing your faith. Prioritize friends who will spur you towards Jesus.

Scripture: Acts 2:24-27
