I read years ago that when someone says they do not have time, what they are really saying is “It wasn’t important to me.”
People make time for what they find important. In fact, if you received a called that a beloved family member was sick or in trouble you would probably be able to drop everything and go see them. Somehow you make time for what you deem as important. I would even take it a step further. Importance is usually placed on things that I find enjoyable. That is why thousands upon thousands of hours are burnt up on Facebook and Twitter. It is important to us to catch up on the latest events. But you maybe thinking, “I am not a computer guy.” Then how about sports? How many hours do men spend watching sports and shows related to sports. I am sure the amount of time we “waste” each month and each year is staggering.
I think the biggest challenge for a Christian is to re-prioritize their life. For each one of us to somehow readjust what we see as important. C.S. Lewis once said, “The things of heaven are an acquired taste.”
So I am continually asking myself, “Did I make time for the things of God today?” Because I believe it is the most important thing in the world.
