Today, as part of my devotions, I came across this verse in Psalm 14:4 (the Message):
Don’t they know
they can’t get away with this—
Treating people like a fast-food meal
over which they’re too busy to pray?
A fast food meal over which they are too busy to pray. Think about that – how often have you and I whipped into a fast food restaurant, bought some food and on our way again. Never stopping, never praying for the food, just inhaling it and moving on.
That is NOT how God wants us to treat people. God is calling us to invest in people, to enjoy spending time with people and to take the time to talk and pray with people.
So, are the people you meet and the people you relate with today a fast food meal or a good solid steak and potatoes sit down dinner?
