I write this for your consideration simply to think about, consider, ponder.
Just in case your wondering why we as Christians have lost our biblical world-view. We have so much biblical ignorance that our though life an philosophy of life is shaped by modern culture.
Think about these statistics.
There are 168 hours in every week and 672 hours in the average (four week) month. The majority of church services these days are exactly one hour long. The average self-identified “committed Christian” attends church 1.2 times a month. Sunday school is no longer a thing in most churches and most small groups are more about relationships and support than Bible study. Moreover, according to a study done by Lifeway only twenty percent of “committed Christians” read or listen to the Bible daily. Conversely, the average adult spends twenty hours a week messing around on the internet, five hours a day watching television and ninety minutes a day staring mindlessly at their phone.
So many distractions, so much busyness, so much merely treading water.
What is it you want to accomplish…I would bet that what is stopping you the most, is your use of time.
