How many times a day, and every day, whether we are at home or somewhere else, we need to leave what we are doing and do what the Lord is pointing us to do. How many times have you been lazy, slacking off, spending your time doing completely useless things. If you think at that time – “what the Lord would say to me? – and the word of the Lord reaches deep into the heart – then you will have no difficulty in understanding that you should leave what you are wasting your time with and go pray, read a book, or visit someone who has your need.
