Neglect

 

 

 

It had just been left there, parked for years.

The back tire on the old bicycle was separating from the rim.

Only the metal frame of the seat was still existing, the plastic cushion long worn away by the weather.

Why would someone have neglected it?

Sometimes our neglect is not intentional; at least, we don’t plan on being neglectful.

It just sort of…..happens.

Or does it?

Forgetfulness and neglect go hand in hand for me.

If I am not thinking about certain things, I may neglect them.

If I am determined to be attentive, I will make plans toward that end.

Psalm 119:10-16 says,

I seek you with all my heart;
   do not let me stray from your commands.
 I have hidden your word in my heart
   that I might not sin against you.
 Praise be to you, O LORD;
   teach me your decrees.
 With my lips I recount
   all the laws that come from your mouth.
 I rejoice in following your statutes
   as one rejoices in great riches.
 I meditate on your precepts
   and consider your ways.
 I delight in your decrees;
   I will not neglect your word.

 

If we want to live in fellowship with God, we must determine to do so.

If we don’t, we may one day find ourselves having been neglectful.
