Remember when you made chocolate milk by adding the cocoa to the milk? Remember how you had to keep it stirred or it would separate? Well, that’ what happens to us if we don’t keep ourselves stirred up in the things of God – we’ll sink to the bottom!
It’s easy to let things slip because we’re so busy with the natural, everyday things of life – family, work, church, etc. But, we can’t use that as an excuse. God knows how life is for us. He’s well aware of our daily commitments – some of which are probably not even necessary.
We are without excuse when it comes to serving the Lord. We have a way of “making” time for the things we want to do, and so it is with God’s things. We need to, on purpose, make time to read and study the Word, to pray, to fellowship with one another. We can make time to spend with the Lord if we so desire. It’s vitally important for our lives and total well-being. We can’t afford to let the Word slip!
Have you ever been reading the Word and a scripture popped out that you had let slip? I think we’ve all been there. We need to pay closer attention to how and where we spend our time. Remember, we can make time for the things we want to do.
Have you ever gone several days without eating because you forgot or were too busy? I think not. We’re very diligent about feeding our physical bodies and we should be ever so diligent about feeding our spirits with God’s Word.
You’ll never grow spiritually if you starve your spirit! Revamp your schedule and make time for the Lord. The results will amaze you!
