Make Time

I love watching television. I love sleeping in. I absolutely love surfing the Internet for funny videos and interesting facts. But, if I had to be completely honest and tell you how many hours I spend a day, a week or a year on these amusements, I guarantee it would blow your mind and mine.

The second half of Psalm 10:4 says “ ... in all his thoughts there is no room for God.” I started thinking about how much television I watched today. Did I sleep in? How many funny videos and interesting facts did I find? Was there enough space left in my day for God?

A relationship with our Creator should always come first. There is nothing wrong with watching television, sleeping in or surfing the web. But when we put these things before our time with Jesus, we’re neglecting what should be our greatest obsession. What in your life is allowing you less time with God? What can you cut out so that there is room for Him?
