All The Day Long 1
The Lord is faithful to us twenty-four seven. He deserves ALL of our time. He will have it when we get to Heaven. That will be what will make Heaven Heavenly. I am often convicted about how little time I actually spend alone with HIM. If we love someone we will spend time with them. The world, our flesh and the Devil try to keep us from spending time with the One Who loves us. They will try to come between us and the Lord. I need to kick them out of the way as often as possible. How about you? The best use of our time is to spend it with the Lord and obeying Him. We ought to be more zealous about spending time with Him than we are about spending time with our earthly loved ones.
Matthew 22:37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
