Adam grew up in the church. His parents were both Christians from the day he was born. He attended Sunday Bible class, his family went to worship God on Sunday mornings, Sunday nights, and then on Wednesday nights. They were a very happy Christian family. Then something happened. Adam started school and his mother started working. Homework, housework, cooking, sleeping, vacation, out-of-town visitors, television, and school activities all took over. It started with Adam and his parents missing Wednesday nights because “after all, the Bible doesn’t say we have to attend on Wednesday nights.” Then when Adam entered Junior High, sports and homework took over and they missed an occasional Sunday night. Soon, they were missing every Sunday night. They were just too busy.
Adam’s mother had too much to do. She couldn’t get ready with all the kids to get ready also. Adam’s dad came up with hundreds of excuses of why he didn’t feel like going to worship God. “After all, Sunday morning is enough for anyone.” At least that’s what Adam’s parents thought.
Today Adam is in his 20’s and never even goes to church. He stays home and watches TV or sleeps. He works late on Wednesday night and has too many things going on Sunday. Today, Adam is lost! His parents will have to live with that throughout eternity!
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
