“Glory and honor are in His presence; strength and gladness are in His place.” – 1 Chronicles 16:27
I heard about a little girl who loved her daddy so much she wanted to do something special for him for Christmas. She decided to make him some slippers. She went up to her bedroom every evening and worked. The times that she used to sit in her father’s lap and talk disappeared. For days she worked alone. Finally, she came down on Christmas Day and presented the slippers to her father.
He was appreciative of her nice gift. But he thought to himself, “How much more I would have valued her time just sitting in my lap and being with me than I value these slippers.”
Are you occupied elsewhere doing things “for” God, rather than spending time with Him? Jesus values the time you spend with Him far more than the things you do for Him.
