what if…

Url-1
What if for Valentines Day a husband bought a card, bought some roses and gave them to his wife?  What if on that day this husband told his wife he loved her and that she was the only one for him.  Nice, huh?  Well, what if that same husband didn't do much else for his wife most the rest of the year?  What if he only spent energy and money on his wife on special occasions like her birthday or a holiday?  Even more, what if that same husband expected constant adoration and
blessing from his wife along with her unrelenting showering of
attention upon him?  Even more, what if that same husband looked at other women from time to time… or spent time with pornography… or imagined being with another… or actually acted upon those desires secretively?   Not so nice, huh?

What if on Sundays a person went to church and put some money in the offering plate?  What if on that day this person told God he loved him and that God was the only One for him?  Nice, huh?  Well, what if that same person didn't do much else for God most the rest of the week?  What if he only spent energy and money on God on special occasions like Christmas or tax return season?  Even more, what if that same person expected constant adoration and blessing from God along with his unrelenting showering of attention upon him?  Even more, what if that same person looked at other objects from time to time… or spent time with other desires… or imagined being with another god… or actually acted upon those desires secretively?   Not so nice, huh?  (1 Samuel 7:2-6.)

  1. Thanks Mills for these encouraging words! I’ve relistened to the talk just so that i wouldn’t forget the challenge myself!

  2. I just wanted to say that your talk on Sunday made me think about how I need to be more consistent in spending time with God during the week and not on “the days that it matters.”
