The Lord Jesus purchased with His precious blood the opportunity to dwell before the very throne of God. How easily we trade this privilege! Many Christians will spend more time each before worthless television programs than they do in the Word of God or in prayer.
(There Were Two Trees in the Garden)
Ouch! How many times have I done this? How often do I still? No just television, but also on the computer or a number of other ways. I need to re-examine my time.
But more importantly I need to change my perspective - I need to realize that time spent in prayer and God's Word is the same as sitting at the foot of God's Throne, being in communion with Him. Not only that, but also that it is not a thing to take for granted, something to do when I feel like it. It is a privilege, one that I should cherish, one that was purchased by another for me by the shedding of His precious blood.
Looking at it in that way sure changes your perspective and your priorities.
