Why Neglect God?
First let’s look at the definition of the word ‘neglect‘
“To fail to carry out an expected or required action through carelessness or by intention.”
How are some ways that you might neglect God?
1. Neglecting your bible because of another activity.
2. Video games, perhaps other activities can keep you from spending time with God.
3. Daily life…
What are some ways to not neglect God?
1. Daily Prayer.
2. Just talking to him throughout the day.
3. Studying his word.
Let’s look at what God’s word has to say about
Ecclesiastes 9:10 K.J.V.
Whatever we may be doing we are to do these things with everything in us; even if it is just a small chore. Because whatever it is that we do is something BIG in the eyes of God.
Luke 9:62 K.J.V.
What Jesus is saying is that we shouldn’t start something and then look back on what we’ve started instead we must see these things to completion whether it be a job, a chore, your word given to someone or another form of commitment Christ told us that those who look back are not fit for the kingdom of God.
We’re only Human.
People often retaliate with the phrase “I’m only HUMAN” and that may be so, but think of it as this we may be humans that cannot be entirely perfect but using this excuse should only be used to an extent.
Like keeping your word to someone, in this day and time sometimes finding someone to keep their word is like trying to find a needle in a haystack and their most common response is the same old statement that “We’re only Human”
