Phillip Yancey said, "Jesus did not mechanically follow a list of 'things I have to do today.'" I like that! I doubt if Jesus would have appreciated our modern emphasis on punctuality, precise scheduling, and rigorous "to do" lists.

He attended wedding feasts that lasted for days. He let himself be distracted by any "nobody" he came across, whether it was a hemorrhaging woman who sneaked up and touched his robe from behind or a blind beggar who made a nuisance of himself. Two of his most impressive miracles — the raising of Jairus’ daughter and the raising of Lazarus from the dead — took place because he arrived too late to heal the sick person!

And here I've got my Day-Timer and PDA, and I bet you’ve got yours. I bet if you look, you've got a long list of things that absolutely, positively must be done today.

Maybe, just maybe, it's time to re-evaluate?Could God fit into your schedule?What about others who might interrupt it because they need to find God?What do you think?

Remember what Jesus said?

"Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?" And he will answer, "I assure you, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me" (Matthew 25:44-45 NLT)

Could God fit into your schedule?
God is not far from any of us! Let's just not get so distracted by our "to do lists" that we miss him!
