[Billy Graham Daily Devotion] Neglect of Soul
By Billy Graham, December 22, 2016 07:12 AM
“Blessed is the man who reveres God, but the man who doesn't care is headed for serious trouble.”
—Proverbs 28:14 (TLB)
All Christians believe in God, but many Christians have little time for God. They are too busy with everyday affairs to be taken up with Bible reading, prayer, and being thoughtful to their fellowmen. Many of them have lost the spirit of a zealous discipleship. If you ask them if they are Christians, they would probably answer, “I think so,” or, “I hope so.” They may go to church at Easter and Christmas and on other special occasions, but otherwise they have little time for God. They have crowded God out of their lives.
The Bible warns against neglect of your soul. It is possible to harden your heart and shrivel your soul, until you lose your appetite for the things of God. This hunger, then, that you should have is a desire to be always right with God. It is a consciousness that all searching for peace of heart, except in Him, is in vain.
Prayer for the day
I hunger today to know more of You, Lord.
