Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

I don't know about you, but I'm a pretty busy guy. I mean between work, kids, baths, breakfasts, housework, yard work, church, errands, family...shoot, sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day. You know what I mean.

And in the middle of it all, what's usually the first to get the axe when schedules get tight? For me, prayer and my Bible.

I find myself thinking "In today's world, how can I have a daily Bible study? Ain't nobody got time for that."

Too blunt? Maybe. But when we brush off God in our hurriedness, we're basically saying "God? Ain't nobody got time for You."

Let me challenge you, and myself. Can we find five minutes? I can. Less time on Facebook. Less time watching the news. Less time reading the paper or a magazine or an article on line.

One less YouTube video. One less Tweet. One less text. I can find those few extra minutes in my day that I waste on trivial things, and re-offer them back to God.

Start saying "Five minutes with God...everybody got time for that."


In the Word: Psalm 5:3 - O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

Extended Study: Read and meditate on all of Psalm 119.

Prayer: Gracious and patient Lord, I repent of the indifference I've shown You. You are important to me and my days are incomplete unless I spend time with You. Help me as I commit myself to the promise of daily communing with You, in Your Word and in prayer. Amen.
