Crowd Mentality
I remember more than 30 years ago while a relatively new Christian, I was hearing much from people in my church about their morning “quiet times.” One such exercise included reading passages from four different sections of the Bible, a lengthy prayer time, and singing a hymn.

Being told that “quiet
times” should last at least an hour, I did everything I could to extend the session
to the full 60 minutes. By the time I reached the end, I was tired, mentally
shot, and felt I had wasted my time. My “quiet time” was a bust, and I resolved
not to do it that way again.

While the men of the
church urged me to stick with it, I decided to handle my time with the Lord my
way, not according to what the “crowd” had deemed was best.
