Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
This does take planning. I will be honest and say sometimes I am not always the best at it even though I have good intentions. When we know as a believer we have to spend time in the word to grow then it is necessary to set aside time and be free of distractions that will get you sidetracked.Similar to working out in a gym to lose weight and stay healthy takes discipline, spending time with God requires discipline. Sunday is not enough to keep you growing. When you only spend one hour on Sunday it is easy to become complacent and stagnant. All of us probably know those who could care less about getting serious about knowing Jesus better. It is not our job to change people. Work on yourself first and let God do the rest with others.You will do what is important to you. How important is getting closer to God?PRAYER: I know it is crucial to spend time on a daily basis with you. The world throws so much garbage at us and the only way to know the truth is to study your word. Help me not put other things first. In Jesus' name. Amen.
