Today my Mom and I were talking about time we spend with the L-rd. She has been reading a book about living intentionally and making sure that we are living in such a way that we are in the right spot to hear the L-rd and to move so that His plans and purposes will be fulfilled in our lives.
It got me thinking about the time we give to G-d. Do we give Him the best of our time and resources or what is left over? Do we set aside time to be with Him and listen to what He has for us, or do we rush around, doing what we think needs to be done, hoping to have a few minutes at some point to send up a few prayers and maybe read a chapter in the Bible.
Just as the tithe is at the first of the week, before anything else, we need to give unto the L-rd the best, the first, of our time. I am speaking to myself as well. It is easy to get caught up projects, even ministry-related, and think that we have spent quality time with G-d. Maybe we have or maybe we haven’t.
Let’s all work on prioritizing G-d’s Word and cultivating our relationship with Him. We can also use some of the techniques and strategies Baruch taught during his seminar on how to study the Bible.
