Simple Pleasantries

Casual waves. Pleasant hellos. You know, the kind of thing that happens when you see a neighbor out while walking the dog or a colleague in the hallway at work. How are you? Isn't the weather lovely? Good seeing you. Hope you have a great rest of the day. See you next time. Simple words, surface deep, expressed almost automatically without any true thought or meaning. Sure you may be busy, distracted or perhaps you just aren't interested in getting involved in a deeper discussion.

Simple pleasantries may be ok for casual relationship and passer by well wishes but will never do when it comes to a relationship between you and Jesus. Prayers on the run, fleeting words and superficial praise are not what God intended for you. He wants to have a relationship with you where he can touch your heart and fill the crevices of your soul. That requires time and quiet uninterrupted fellowship with Him. Don't short change yourself and miss the greatest blessing of your life. God knows you and loves you. Isn't it about time for you to know and love Him?

"I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me." John 10:14
