STOP AND THINK – The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches. (Anonymous)

That’s a sad commentary on the level of spiritual life, isn’t it? People are inclined to look to God when life is threatened. During war they speak of “foxhole confessions,” when soldiers promise to serve God if He will just let them live. Is that all God is to us? A life preserver? An emergency first-aid kit? We would do better to seek God while we can.

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
