Recently, I have felt convicted over the amount of time I spend on my friends and the amount of time I spend with God.
Sure, I read my Bible and pray every day. But I should be wanting to do that and I should be CHOOSING to make time to spend with God, and in His word.
We can make SO many excuses, trying to make ourselves feel better.
Oh, I am so busy… I have to wake up at 5 every day and ride the bus to school….. I work all day and am too tired to do anything when I get home….. I am a stay at home mom and I have to watch my kids all day…..
Listen, y’all. YOU choose how you spend your time. YOU choose whether to talk to friends on the bus, or read the Bible, no matter what others say or think. YOU choose to get on your phone or tv to “unwind” when you get home from work, instead of praying and thanking God for your day. And YOU choose what to do with your kids.
We lead by example.
God has called us Christians to be an example to those around us. And saying we love God and the Bible, but NOT making time to spend with either…. makes us such hypocrites, we might as well shut up and stop judging others.
Of course it isn’t wrong to do fun things. We are meant to have a good time. But we need to make sure we are prioritizing God, and not Netflix, or Instagram, or meaningless things like that.
And I promise I am not pointing fingers or judging y’all. I am just as bad and have been convicted about this lately.
So, I just want to encourage y’all…
Stop making time for things of job eternal consequence, when you could be developing your relationship with the One who’s saved you.
