Every day is busy for me, but a particular day was just crazy. Sleeping in that morning didn’t help my problem of not having time for practically anything—even really basic things, like eating, drinking, and having my quiet time. About 3pm or so, I looked out the window and noticed the roses drooping in the hot sun.
I’d not watered our garden in a few days and had kept putting it off because I couldn’t make time for it. Finally, I grabbed my shoes and marched out the back door. “It’s just too important!” I told myself. Other duties would have to be put on hold. Watering the flowers—or failing to do so—could be a matter of life and death for them.
As I thought of this, however, a similar thought pricked my conscience. “Stop putting off your time in God’s Word (and time with Him) today. It’s just too important. It could be a matter of spiritual defeat and spiritual victory. Everything else will have to wait. Be still and know that He is God.” I did.
If you haven’t watered your garden yet today, I suggest you do so, because it’s important. But if you haven’t spent time in God’s Word yet today (watering the garden of your heart), I strongly advise that you put this aside and pick up the Bible, because it’s just too important.
