Are Christians Too Busy To Spend Time For God?
We live in a busy society. Schedules full of activities and meetings. Agendas that have to be met. Deadlines for projects that have got to be finished be a certain time. Students have homework that has to be done and finals to study. Kids have soccer, baseball, tennis, and numerous other activities. When society gets a break they spend time the movies, ballpark, golfing, and other hobbies.
Do we schedule time for God? Do we make God a priorities in our busy lives? Do we stop long enough to pray? Do we slow down to read and meditate upon his word? Even as minister in preparing for sermons do we stop to just read for our own personal growth? The average time most Christians make for God during the week is 1 hour a week to God. About the length of a show on television. Jesus shows us countless times as he retreats to the mountian to spend time alone with God that it is important slow down, retreat, to make time for God. It is important for us to as Christians to not too busy for God.
A great book I recommend is "Too Busy Not To Pray" by Bill Hybels.
