Do you ever find yourself not taking time to spend with God because you’re so busy with other things? A child of God who wants to please God keeps his priorities straight and refuses to do things that could distract him from what is really important.
In order to grow closer to God on a daily basis, you’ll have to avoid some of the distractions and entanglements of the world. This may mean saying no to an opportunity you’d like to take but really don’t have time for. It could mean exercising good boundaries and not getting too wrapped up in other people’s problems. It’s important to help people, but there is a difference between godly involvement and entanglement. It may even mean being less focused on the stresses and cares that come up over the course of each day, because they certainly can distract us from God’s will and purpose for our lives.
God loves you and wants to be in relationship with you. Don’t let the entanglements of the world keep you from enjoying daily fellowship with him.
Don’t let the less important things crowd out what is most important in your life.
