One Word. One Question. Why?

If someone asked you if you believe in God what would you say? I think most people reading this article would say yes. Most of us believe there is a God…we believe that something created this universe. We go to Church. We might even read the Bible. Shoot…we might even be in a bible study! If any of those are you I want you to ask yourself this question…“Why?”

Romans 1:21 “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

Why InstiWhy do I attend a Church?

Why do I read the Bible?

Why am I in a bible study?

You have the opportunity to change your mindset the next time you enter in to each of these environments just by asking yourself those questions. Go to church with a new focus…read the Bible through a new lens…see the others in your Bible study in a different light.

The devil doesn’t want us to ask this question. He wants us to fill up our schedules with work, meetings, events, school, sports and all kinds of stuff. He wants us to go through the motions in life. He wants us to forget why we go to church. When he can get us to feel overwhelmed with life he can take our focus off of the why.

When you find your WHY…you find your WHO.

My WHY is my WHO. WHY I choose to spend my time doing certain things in my life is a direct result of WHO I am doing them for.

Ask yourself WHY you do what you do. If your answer doesn’t involve WHO you do it for then you need to rethink WHY you are doing it. You don’t have to stop doing it…but you might need to change your focus within it.

Lastly…life is busy…it is really busy…so be careful with your time and do not forget to glorify and thank God for the blessings in your life. Slow down for just one moment today and ask yourself “Why?”

  1. Great post! What’s that expression, “If you’re too busy for God . . . you’re too busy.” If you love someone they are always in the back of your mind, therefore I pray without ceasing. It is only after the puzzle is all pieced together do we see the whole picture. Blessings,
