My wife was "encouraging" our son to turn off the Playstation yesterday and go outside to play. "You need to get some fresh air," she said to him.
He walked across the room, opened the door, stuck his head outside and took a deep breath. "How many breaths do I need?" he asked.
I wonder how often we approach God the same way. A couple of breaths and we're ready to go back to what we were doing.
Take some time today to fill your lungs. Go outside and play. Spend some time with God. Breath deeply.
