No Time for God? What if God Has No Time for You

We often evaluate our  income to see if it is being wasted or put to good use. We should do the same with our time.Some spend some of their time drinking coffee, playing with children, watching TV, listening to music, reading books,  studying God's word, praying, or fellowshipping with other Christians.

The point is that we all have a time that is spent doing something other than providing the absolute necessities of life. And, not to say that in all circumstances life is the best, we always make decisions regarding the spending of time. We may use all of our time to make more money than is absolutely needed to live and therefore spend our discretionary time seeking worldly wealth, but the fact remains that we had the time. We make choices in life as to how much time to spend in accumulating wealth and how much time to spend with God. We must balance time and wealth with all of our responsibilities. One of our responsibilities is to spend time with God. 

How much time do you spend with God during an average week? If you spend all your time without including time with God, are you seeking first the kingdom of heaven? Jesus teaches that we cannot serve God and the world - we must serve one or the other. In Matthew 6:24, 33 Jesus says: "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will he loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. ... But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." And for those who seek the kingdom of God first He says: "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." (Matt. 6:34) 

I am not advocating that all discretionary time should be spent in a formal passion with God. It is God who has given us all things to enjoy (I Tim. 6:17). But to be extreme and spend little or no time with God is to neglect our responsibilities toward God. With this in mind, what statements are you making by the way you spend your time - is God important? If you answered yes, your life must be rich in the pleasures of heaven - you have set your mind on things above, not on the earth (Col. 3:2).
