Symptoms of Drifting Away from God

 
As we get to know Him, the symptoms below are reversed. We realize that all money belongs to Him and that He provides. We are led by Him in our giving and in our spending. Church, time spent in prayer and Bible reading and just sitting in the presence of God is just too short, but entertainments are meaningless and irrelevant--we sometimes sit through entertainments just for the chance that we might be able to minister to some of those who are drawn to these things, but we can't wait for the entertainment to end. We realize that the Bible is the Word of God, and we are skeptical of the ungodly information sources, newspapers, tv, movies, schools, and such, since we know we are going to have to swim through a thick sea of lies and deception. We are increasingly hungry for God to reveal Himself in a new way and to have a better spiritual understanding, but the gossip and chit chat of the day is of little value to us. As we walk in the Spirit, His precepts are not grievous to us, we love His ways and realize that His ways are love, and we begin to increasingly hate all ways that are not His ways.

Isn't it strange...
How the same amount of money seems like so much to some when they donate it to church, but so little when they go shopping?

Isn't it strange...
How 2 hours seem so long to some when they're at church, and how the same people think that 2 hours is short they seem when they're watching a movie or at an amusement?

Isn't it strange...
That some complain that they can't find a word to say when they're praying, but they have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

Isn't it strange...
How difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible for some people, but how easy it is for them to read 100 pages of a popular novel?

Isn't it strange...
How everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games, but some of those same people do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in church?

Isn't it strange...
How some need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks in advance so they can include it in their agendas, but they can adjust their schedules for other events at the last minute?

Isn't it strange...
How difficult it is to learn about God and to share it with others, but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange...
How some people believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but they question the words in the Bible?

Isn't it strange...
How everyone wants a place in heaven, but some don't want to follow the Path God gave us to get there?
