What distracts you from time with the Lord?  Our society offers many options–Facebook, texting, Pinterest, YouTube, TV, iTunes, blogs, Angry Birds, Words with Friends…the list goes on and on.  It’s amazing how easy it is to find time in your day for all the things I just listed, but not time to spend with your God.

I want to challenge you to fast from one media-related thing this week.  Instead of the time you would be spending on that activity, spend it with the Lord in prayer or in the Word. It may seem difficult to give up at first, but I think you’ll find that what you invest in your relationship with the Lord produces a much greater return than what you invest in entertainment.

“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord…”
(Philippians 3:8a)
