It's a choice.

Though directed at a group of pastors by a godly man who gave everything he had to the study of Scripture so he could faithfully feed his own sheep, this quote is a fitting challenge for each of us. Especially as it applies to the priority of reading Scripture and praying.

"We have plenty of time for all our work did we husband our time and hoard it up aright," he told them. "We cannot look seriously in one another's faces and say it is want of time.
It is want of intention.
It is want of determination.
It is want of method.
It is want of motive.
It is want of conscience.
It is want of heart.
It is want of anything and everything but time." - Alexander Whyte

An excellent and convicting quote, because the truth is, how we spend our time - is a choice.

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Ephesians 5:15-17

O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! Behold, You have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before You.
Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Psalm 39:4, 5
