“He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”
Sometimes I hear advisers tell young people, “Make all the money you can, just so you make it honestly.” That’s not good advice!
If you make all the money you can, you’re going to be making money when you should be doing something else. You’re going to be making money when you ought to be with your family, your spouse, your children, or other believers—and above all, alone with God.
I’m not against making money. I’m simply saying we need to stop and prioritize our lives. Do you know what I think God does with some of us? He makes us “to lie down.” We won’t do it unless He makes us. Don’t let it come to that.
Why not stop right now and pray, “Lord Jesus, You don’t have to make me lie down. I’d rather slow down. I want to be still and know that You are GOD! Show me how.”
