Our culture has made church all about themselves. We only go if it fits our needs. But is this what God had in mind when the church began, to be all about us? In 1 Samuel, we see the Israelites thinking they know better than God, and we can learn a lot from their example.
MONDAY: Read 1 Samuel 8. How have you seen the response God gave to Samuel play out in your life?
TUESDAY: How have you seen yourself make things about you? Have you done anything to prevent that from happening again?
WEDNESDAY: Spend 5 to 10 minutes today praising God through prayer. Spend time being in harmony with Him.
THURSDAY: What do you need to start doing to stop relying on the church to feed you? Whatever it is (reading, spending alone time with God, journaling, etc.), start doing it today.
FRIDAY: Do you have any "consumerism" thoughts when it comes to church? What do you need to remind yourself today to remind you that church isn't about you?
