I believe it is essential for the Christian to spend time daily in His word. By spending time focusing on Him, it “recharges our spiritual battery” and helps us make decisions through our day that our pleasing to Him. God does not expect us to spend all day in His word or in prayer. However, I have discovered that when we give God the “first” or best of our day, He honors that commitment and blesses our lives. If you are a morning person, give God the first part of that morning. If you are a night person, give God the first part of that evening. The point is if we give God the best of our time, He honors that and blesses the rest of our day and night.

Maturity is achieved when a person postpones immediate pleasures for long-term values.
