Shoes on a rock
Daily Devotion


Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

A man was out driving in the country during a heavy rainstorm when he came across an old farmer who was surveying the ruins of his barn. He pulled over and asked the farmer what happened.

"Roof fell in," the farmer replied. "What happened with it? Why did it fall in?" asked the stranger.

"It leaked so long, it just finally rotted through," the farmer said. "Why in the world didn't you fix it before it rotted through?"

"Well, sir," said the farmer, "I just got around to it. When the weather was good, there wasn't a need for it. And when it rained, it was just too wet to work on."

Isn't it amazing that when you want to do something you somehow manage to find the time, no matter how busy you are? But when someone asks you to do something you don't want to do, suddenly there is just no room in the schedule.

This can happen when it comes to the Christian life as well. If we are serving God only when it's convenient, then we are settling for second best. If we make time for the things of God only when something better doesn't come along first, then we are missing out on what God wants to do in our lives.

How much better it is to make time for the things of God — to put the things of God above everything else. How much better it is to get your priorities right. Instead of making excuses, make time for the Lord. It is not only the simple way to live, but it is also the best way.
