It is fun to watch my little dog, Max. He loves to roll over on his back and kick his legs. When Max wants a treat, he sits in front of me and stares at me until I notice him. He responds well to my commands to sit, speak, dance, lie down and roll over. But Max gets distracted easily. Often he ignores me when I tell him to come to me. I want Max to spend some time with me, but I must call him again and again.
Sometimes I am like Max. I know that I need to spend time reading my Bible and praying. I want to spend time with God. But I get distracted with my home, my family and my job. I ignore the one thing that is most important.
God loves spending time with me. Psalm 149:4 shows us how God feels about us. “The Lord is happy with his people. He did a wonderful thing for his humble people. He saved them!” God wants me to read His Word and tell Him that I love Him.
Today is a good day to spend time with God. Read and study some verses in the Bible. Praise God and share your thoughts and feelings with Him. God will bless you and help you grow in your Christian life.
