We only have twenty-four hours in this day. That’s it. And God is such a detailed, intimately involved God that He has an opinion on how we spend these fleeting hours. And sometimes that means we can’t say “yes.”
I’m telling you, there are lots of “good” things we could do today. Good projects that could help us organize our pantry or good help that we could give to another. Things that could make us look extra hip or super spiritual. But we can’t say “yes” to everything or everyone. If we do, our plate gets too full and things start spilling over the edge.
We only have twenty-four hours. And He has an opinion as to how we spend it. So before that little “yes” comes out of our mouth, let’s ask His opinion. “Lord, is this how you want me to spend my time today?” Because He has a plan; and it really is best.
Fill me, Lord…
How do you keep from saying yes to every good thing that comes along?
And to the ones He led to say “yes” to this wild idea of memorizing the Sermon on the Mount…
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye.
