When it comes to church, it seems everyone has an excuse. Any preacher will tell you that they have heard it all. I'm too tired to go to church, I worked all week, and let's not forget my favorite. The Dallas Cowboys are playing, and I don't want to miss the kickoff. What are you putting before God in your life?
"But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, 'I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.'
Put God first in your life. All the other things are just temporary. When you get to heaven, you won't be thinking about the big game, or sleeping in. Instead of cheering and doing the wave, you will be praising God, and lifting your hands in worship.
