Are You Getting Your Treats?

Every morning, Tigger and Tiger get cat treats. The later I sleep, the more anxious they get about their treats. They desire them as early in the day as they can get them. If I first sit at the computer, like I did this morning, they sit near by and....they really do this...Tiger particularly...they scowl at me. It's like they are saying "Stop what you are doing! Don't you know how important our treats are?"

We, too, have treats waiting on us each morning. Our Loving Lord desires us to come to Him first thing each morning and get the treats He has waiting for us in His Word. Oh, for each of us to be as anxious to get into His Word as Tigger and Tiger are to get their morning treats!

Little Lesson Life Expression
Did you have your treats from the Bible this morning? If not, what did you place a higher priority on? Will you re-evaluate that priority tomorrow morning?

Genesis 19:27 (New International Version)
Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD.

Mark 1:35 (New International Version)
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

Lamentations 3:22 (The Message)
God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left.
