Prayer of Quiet: Part 2
The other day I used my lunch hour for errands. I tried to do this as efficiently as possible. I stopped by the dry cleaners (less than three minutes). Filled and washed the car (record time). Went through the restaurant drive-through and ordered a sandwich (perfectly timed to avoid a line). Had my money ready. Paid for my meal. Drove off without my sandwich. Drove to the lake to eat my sandwich. Drove two miles back to the restaurant. Went through the restaurant drive-through. Picked up my sandwich. Did not enjoy the sandwich.
For many of us the Christian life is a highly efficient and disciplined process. I commend us for that. But in the process we want to make sure we do not leave out the Holy Spirit. When we commit our lives to spiritual efficiency and accomplishment without being attentive to God’s activity — we spend time and money, but we drive off without the sandwich.
