What Are You More Concerned About

In the days of the Judges, Israel was spiritually ruled by one Eli the priest. His two sons were also priest but were very corrupt.
The day came when Israel battled against the Philistines and ended up losing the Ark.
A messenger ran to Shiloh to spread the news.
So the messenger answered and said, “Israel has fled before the Philistines, and there has been a great slaughter among the people. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead; and the ark of God has been captured.”
Then it happened, when he made mention of the ark of God, that Eli fell off the seat backward by the side of the gate; and his neck was broken and he died, for the man was old and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.
1 Sam 4:17-18
Eli wasn’t shocked at the news that his sons had died, but the news of the Ark killed him.
His passion was for the ark.
It is written there was Eli, sitting on a seat by the wayside watching, for his heart trembled for the ark of God. 1 Sam 4:13
That brings us to the question are you more concerned about the economy, the ecology, or politics..
Or are you more concerned about the things of God?
