Exodus 5:17 But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.
When the Israelites wanted to worship the Egyptians added more work to them. They said if you have time to worship then you do not have enough work to do! That is the basic attitude of the world. Time taken out of your day to spend in the Word of God and prayer is a waste.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Take time to worship. Be at all the services of your church. Do not skip church for work. Show the world who is first in your life. Show the Devil who is first. Show yourself who is first in your life. Show your children and set an example that serving God is more important than making money.
Don’t skip church for family time instead of work. How come work is so important that we do whatever we have to but getting together to worship God and learn more from Him becomes of less importance.
No God doesn’t love you less if you miss church. But then He doesn’t love you less if you miss work either.
Some where and some time in our life we are going to have to get some priorities that show what is most important in our lives. What is most important in your life? Do you take time each day to meet with God? Do you make time to worship and serve God in your church?
Or do you think that you are wasting your time if you spend so much of it worshiping and serving God!?
