Life is busy. There is school, then college, then work. There is a house, a yard, or maybe a garden to keep up. For families with children there is always something going on either with school or an extra activity. Retired people seem to have as little time as before they retired, I guess that is why they say “retired” means “tired again”. Grandparents are kept busy keeping up with the grandchildren. There are clubs and groups of all kinds, even churches, demanding our time in a variety of activities that don’t include sitting quietly, reading, studying, and meditating on God’s Word. Don’t forget about keeping up with the news and favorite television programs.
These are not necessarily evil things, but they do take time. The fact is that we do find time for the things that are important enough to us. Did you know that an average reader could read most of the chapters in the Bible in 5 minutes or less? Did you know that the Bible is available to listen to in many kinds of recorded format? Did you know that about 15 -20 minutes a day would get you through the whole Bible in 1 year? More next time. Got Bible questions? Ask me.
