— Niya Tanielle
Have you ever had that friend that only called when they needed something? And once they got it, you never heard from them? From my own personal experience this can be quite insulting and after a few NOs the person got the hint and never called again. You don’t like it and God doesn’t like it either.
We can say,”I don’t have time!”, but if we just total the time we spend on Facebook alone, we can definitely find the time! I came across this small poem that is a nice gentle reminder. I knelt to pray but not for long, I had too much to do. I had to hurry and get to work For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer, And jumped up off my knees. My Christian duty was now done My soul could rest at ease. All day long I had no time To spread a word of cheer. No time to speak of Christ to friends, They’d laugh at me I’d fear. No time, no time, too much to do.
That was my constant cry, No time to give to souls in need But at last the time, the time to die. I went before the Lord, I came, I stood with downcast eyes. For in his hands God held a book; It was the book of life. God looked into his book and said “Your name I cannot find. I once was going to write it down… But never found the time”
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6 (NIV)
