I friend of mine has a driveway that he cannot drive on. It all began with a little crack in the concrete driveway. No one took the time to address the little crack and now it has grown to the point that a car can not drive or park on it. Unfortunately, this driveway is like so many of us. We become so busy with life, so tossed about by every day cares, or perhaps so confident of our own abilities, that we become unaware of our own spiritual need. We go on in life as though we have no need to deal with the foundations of our lives, not realizing that tiny cracks are starting to form.
This kind of negligent thinking is usually accompanied by prayerlessness and insensitivity to the Spirit of God. A Christian who is too busy to get into the Presence of God is a Christian who will soon find himself in trouble, just like the driveway.
1 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV)
12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
