How to know what you or others prioritize

Just want to share with you my favorite entry from one of my favorite books: pdl or the purpose driven life by rick warren:

The importance of things can be measured by how much time we are willing to invest in them. The more time you give to something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you. If you want to know a person's priorities, just look at how they use their time.

Time is your most precious gift becuase you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone
your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greates gift you can give someone is your time.

It is not enough just to say relationships are important; we must prove it by
investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. "My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action" 1Thess 5:10 Relationships take time and effort,
and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E."

(Warren, p. 127)

I have several favorite lines from the book. But I think my all time favorite is the first line of the first chapter ... It's not about you.

How wonderfully freeing is that to know it's about God, not me?
