On Sunday, I challenged my congregation to join me for a competition of spending time in the word of God. I called it The Southside Church God-Time Competition, and here are the simple rules:
- At least 10 minutes a day with God, every day.
- Time with God means something is read (from the Bible), something is written, and something is prayed.
- There will be some kind of award given for the person who lasts the longest.
- There will be some kind of award given for the person who accumulates the most individual “God-Times.”
I haven’t figured out the prizes yet, but I’m willing to take donations! If you want to sweeten the pot, let me know!
I’m also working on setting up some kind of online tool to track our progress and see how we are all doing. For me personally, I’m going to use my blog to record my progress.
