My grandparents lived in New Jersey and Florida when I was growing up in Kansas. At that time, long distance phone calls were such a luxury that they didn’t happen all that often and I only got to see them once or twice a year. And so while I loved them, I wasn’t that close to them. My grandson, Henry, lives in Houston. Because of the distance and my schedule, I don’t get to see him nearly as much as I would like. However, we Facetime nearly every day This means I will have a much closer relationship with him than I did my grandparents. The same thing is true of your relationship with God. Spend just a little time with God now and then? You won’t have a very close relationship. Take time to connect every day? You will be amazed how close you grow.
