It can happen so quickly and easily that we should be wary in judging others. 
What am I speaking about, you may be wondering? Well, I am speaking about allowing our spiritual lives to fall into disarray. It may be a slow slide into apathy, but when we take stock of things, we may realise how far we have gone. Today's reading brought this to my attention.

30 "I went past the field of a sluggard,
    past the vineyard of someone who has no sense;
31 thorns had come up everywhere,
    the ground was covered with weeds,
    and the stone wall was in ruins.
32 I applied my heart to what I observed
    and learned a lesson from what I saw:
33 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest
34 and poverty will come on you like a thief
    and scarcity like an armed man." - Proverbs 24:30-34

Did you notice the language towards the end? Solomon says "a little sleep, a little slumber" - it is the small things that we stop doing that can lead us to the big downfall.

How are your spiritual disciplines going at the moment?
How is your spiritual house?

Keep going at spending time with Jesus - he is our hope and strength at all times.

Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God's law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it. Florence Nightingale

It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through. Zig Ziglar
