Why is it so hard to grasp the simple truths of life, so much so that we let them slip through our fingers like water. These truths should be drunk in like living water, but instead we fill up on pop which gets us farther away from holding onto the essential.
Relationships are essential. We were made for relationship, yet relationships DO take effort and time and some grasping. We don’t often grasp this simple truth as we let other things, pop, take priority. The ‘pop’ of life can be all sorts of glitz and glamor, fun and exciting and time consuming.
How often do we ignore our little girl who just wants to talk in favor of the email that calls for our immediate response? How often does the tv drama take precedence over an intimate conversation with our spouse? How often does an entertainment of some sort or an important task crowd out our prayer time with God?
