What Matters Most

What Matters Most

Everything that we allow into our minds, hearts and lives—everything that we spend our time and money on—has an impact on how we grow, or don’t grow, spiritually.

Craig Groeschel, “Soul Detox”

 

T.R, over at Inside Cup wrote a really powerful post entitled My Phone Is More Important Than God? that really got me to thinking about how much time I spend away from God because I’m always focused on other things, especially my phone. She hit the nail on the head!

How many times have I lost my phone and have a total freak out moment while trying to find it?

Or how many times have I freaked out over my stats and why my blog isn’t growing?

Christian bloggers and all users of social media be aware of the gratifying sense of stats. Comments. Likes. Followers. Numbers. 

We become accountable to ourselves and the world before being accountable to God. 

T.R Noble, Inside Cup

Why am I not freaking out over someone coming to know Christ? Why am I not freaking out over how much time I spend with the Lord? THOSE are the things that matter!

Spending time with the Lord is what should matter most!

The more time we spend on our phones or the more time we obsess over blog stats is more time that we grow apart from the Lord. 

Our phones, if we’re not careful, can become an idol.  Our obsession with anything other than Christ can become an idol.  (See Who (Or What) Are You Worshiping?)

T.R’s post really opened my eyes! Please, check out her blog!

  1. Wow, a very timely reminder for me. Have been feeling that I tend to be busy with my phone all the time and have to consciously keep the phone aside so it does not take over.
    Thankyou for this Leigh.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing! Amen! Why aren’t we freaking out over the lost? Good point! I’m so grateful the post spoke deeply to you and others. So thankful how God spoke to me through it. ❤ He is at work!

  3. I definitely agree. On most days when I look back and realized that I’ve wasted them, I freak out over why I haven’t spent enough time with Christ. I recently made a schedule in which I’ll be spending more time with our Savior regardless of whatever I’m doing. Great post, Leigh!
