Who wants to be last?

Last in line.

Last on the list.

Chosen last for the team.

Last to be recognized.

Last to be seen at the doctor’s office.

Last to be promoted.

Last to be heard.

Last to be healed.

Last to be delivered.

Last to get your breakthrough.

When was the last time that you were frustrated about being last?

I just want to give you a quick reminder. The next time that you get ready to complain about being last, remember this…

Being LAST is better than being LEFT OUT!

For every person that’s LAST, there are countless others who were never chosen, never included, never considered…who were LEFT OUT.

And, think about this. It’s the LAST piece of any puzzle that makes it complete.

Remember the beautiful promise that Jesus gave…

Matthew 20:16 (NKJV)

So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

Can you think of a time that you were blessed to be last?



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
