Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)
I once had a conversation with a gentleman who spent about ten minutes telling me how he likes to stay busy. He works hard all week long and then on the weekends he likes to hunt, fish, or golf. He told me about how he likes to get up early and grab his coffee and head to work during the week so that he arrives about thirty minutes early and can sit in his truck and enjoy his coffee. When he got done, I asked him how his spiritual life was doing? Specifically, how was his daily Bible reading and prayer time going? He then began to tell me how he just struggles to find the time to read the Bible on any consistent basis. He has the time to get to work early, to hunt, fish, and golf, but just cannot seem to find the time to read God’s word. But “man does not live by bread alone, but [man lives] by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” No matter how busy we are, we always find the time to eat every day and we always find the time to do the things that are most important to us. Not finding the time to spend daily time in prayer and Bible reading is not about being too busy—it’s about priorities. If we are not finding the time to spend daily time in prayer and God’s word, it’s because it’s just not important to us. Human beings will always find the time to those things which matter to them most.
