Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Thought of the day—

The wisest man ever to live, King Solomon, warns of spiritual neglect in these words – ‘A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.’ His words paint the picture of a Christian who through spiritual neglect has slide into a state of spiritual indifference. It doesn’t take gross sin to produce a chilled heart. Just start missing church, neglecting of the Bible, and ignoring prayer and ‘spiritual slumber’ will come upon us quickly. Allow seemingly ‘little’ things of neglect – a Sunday missed here, a few days of no time in the Word, and prayer put aside for other things and soon, bad spiritual habits will form in our lives. And when bad spiritual habits form, the heart grows cold and spiritual indifference settles in and we lose the wonder, joy, and power of the Gospel in our lives. Remember, it is the little things – a little sleep, a little slumber – which will cut the spiritual nerves in our lives, desensitize us, and produce a backslider (Proverbs 23:33-34).
