For a decade I managed a real estate and property management company. I took calls all day long from people looking for a home to buy or a house to rent. Besides the cost, the next most important question I was asked was about neighborhood schools. Parents always prioritized moving to a home with a good school for their children to attend.
Americans move frequently. The statistic is that the average American moves to another house 11 times in his life. In 2012, the US Census Bureau reported that slightly more than 1 out of 10 Americans moved.
Since we move so often, do we prioritize having a good church nearby our new home? We prioritize schools, the work commute, or access to various amenities, why not where we will worship?
After all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:32-33).
