The Neglected Vineyard

Our Pastor preached a message out of Song of Solomon chapter 1 verse 6 last night about our vineyard.

6 Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.

What a truth he brought out in the message.
We all have vineyards that we tend to everyday. Whether it is the vineyard of our job, our children, our play time, whatever it may be, if you will see in that verse that she was not lazy and she was a keeper of others vineyards, but her own vineyard she had not kept.
It is so easy for us to tend to other vineyards and they may very well be good things, but if we are not careful we can neglect our own vineyard in our lives.
We must make it a priority in our lives to make sure we read our Bible and pray and make our walk with the Lord a top priority.
It is so easy to get busy that we quickly begin to listen to Satan's excuses that he will give us and before we know it our Bible reading has taken a back seat.
Show me a man that has fallen and I will show you an man that has stopped reading his Bible.

Let's try not to neglect our vineyard today.
