Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple, and each evening he went out to spend the night on the hill called the Mount of Olives, and all the people came early in the morning to hear him at the temple. (Luke 21:37, 38)
Meditation Thought: Being on time demonstrates an event is important.
Prayer: Dear God, there have been times in my life when I have not put forth the effort to be on time for Bible class and worship. My spirit is convicted of this because I know for ball games, concerts, shows at the Orpheum, and events at the Fed-Ex Forum, I tend to arrive in plenty of time. I have even paid extra money to have a front row seat. Yet when it comes to worship, I have not put forth the same effort to arrive early and get a front row seat. I pray that I will put a greater priority on being on time to study Your Word and to worship You. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
