Praise God in Every Season

Summer is a time when many of us experience a change in our routines. Kids and grandkids are out of school. We schedule vacations and look forward to summer activities. The days are longer and we may work longer. There are summer concerts, summer picnics, summer sports, and many other events taking place. Summer is fun and it is a great time to enjoy all the blessings God has given us.

Although our routines may change in various ways during the summer, we should make sure our spiritual routines are not disrupted. We must guard our times of prayer and Bible reading. We must maintain our practice of helping people in need. We must not forsake the assembly of the saints, nor neglect our Bible classes on Sunday and Wednesday. All of these routines and practices are essential to our spiritual formation and maintaining a healthy relationship with God. It may be difficult at times to continue our spiritual routines in the summer, but we must make sure we are prioritizing our devotion to God above everything else.

The greatest command is to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We show our love for God in many different ways, but one of the main ways is by our commitment to him. We are faithful to God no matter the time or season. We would not accept it if our spouse chose to only be faithful to us at certain times of the year, and rightly so. Why would we treat God any differently? Our devotion to him should be greater than our devotion to our spouse. We should never neglect our relationship with God because it gets busy. If it were not for God, we would never be able to enjoy all the activities of summer, and so we should take every opportunity to praise and thank him.
