Joshua 24:14 -15 (HCSB)
14“Therefore, fear the Lord and worship Him in sincerity and truth. Get rid of the gods your fathers worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and worship Yahweh. 15But if it doesn’t please you to worship Yahweh, choose for yourselves today the one you will worship: the gods your fathers worshiped beyond the Euphrates River or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living. As for me and my family, we will worship Yahweh.”
“Therefore, fear the Lord and worship Him in sincerity and truth. Get rid of the gods your fathers worshiped.”

My list might look something like this……coffee, business work, kids, school, husband, grandma, writing, reading, little ones I baby-sit.
not ver impressive list, i is it? But these are the things that consume my mind before I even take the time to spend in the word and in prayer. Now that I am reflecting, i feel hypocritical as I have been talking with my own children about their games being more important than learning about God. (Forgive me, Lord)
