Sudden Realization

So Thursday (9/23) I have a test in my child development class, and I started study for it yesterday. (a little late, yes, I know) Thank the Lord that the material was actually interesting to me because otherwise, there would've been no way that I would have accomplished as much as I did, and I've only studied 1 out of 4 chapters (but.... chapter 1 was the biggest). I spent over 3 hours, not even exaggerating, totally engaged in the material, highlighting, underlining, and jotting notes down when i suddenly realized something that stopped me in my tracks. 

Why is it I am so fully intrigued and engaged in this textbook? Yes it's because I have a test, and I promise you I have never studied this hard for a test in.... well forever.  


Isn't there another book that I should be even more so totally drowning myself in? Isn't there a text that I should not be totally engaged in only just before I have a huge life test, but every day, so that I can be prepared for any "pop-tests"?

Isn't that true for all of us?

We spend so much time totally wrapped up in so many other things, and not even bad things, but are they all ultimately more important than our Savior? Are we giving our Lord the adequate time and attention that He truly and honestly deserves, WAY more than anything else?

I don't know about you, but I know that my textbook never forgave me of my sins, and never died for me. I enjoy studying and learning from it, but I want to make sure that it knows it's place in my life.
Right behind the ultimate book.

God's Word
