I am writing a short one today, because I had a long day driving to and from Virginia Tech….and frankly I am exhausted….but you know what? There is nothing that is better than spending the day with my wife and kids. One of the great things about a long drive is that you get to communicate whether you want to or not. I don’t say that with any hidden agenda…it is just that sometimes we are silent when we need to talk. But on a long trip, it opens up the door for great conversation. For some reason we allow the fatigue of life to prevent us from conversing….
And…you get the opportunity to listen to some great messages by great Christian teachers….if you are smart.
What that means is that you have two options when you are going down the road…..either veg out and listen to your favorite oldies….or spend some time with the God. It is worth it…
Psalm 1 – Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Be encouraged…..spending time with God is worth it. AND….spending time with your wife and kids is precious.
Grace and Peace, Dan
