July 04 – Don’t Be Seated, Please

tfh sunriseIn many cities across the land, offices have no seats. Workers stand up to do their work. Sitting is being described as unhealthy by medical professionals, who point out the perils of a sedentary lifestyle. According to the Mayo Clinic, 50-70% of Americans spend six or more hours a day sitting. If this could be cut in half, two years could be added to the life span. There is a definite relationship between sitting and thinking. Busy as we are, there is need to be still and think. The Bible, says it well-“be still and know that I am God.” In other words, God, our Creator wants us to stop in our busy lives and think about the most important part of our lives- our relationship with God our maker. When we do, enlightened by His Word, the Bible we will see ourselves as He sees us, be drawn to a recognition of our true spiritual needs (“all have sinned”) and to inviting His Son into our lives.
