There are so many morning routines out there!

Many of them are good. Some of them are not always easy to follow.

Do you have a morning routine?

But I want to give you one Bible passage to think about as you consider your morning routine. It will change your entire day. It will change your mood. It will keep you from danger. It will strengthen you spiritually! It will help your family! Are you ready?

“And all the people would get up early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him.” Luke 21:38

I love that! Don’t you?

While Jesus was on earth, the people couldn’t get enough of His teaching. They got up early to LISTEN to HIM. What a great morning routine. Jesus did the same thing. He got up early! For what?

“In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.” Mark 1:35

For us here’s what this means. Before we turn on CNN, Foxnews, ESPN, or whatever we watch and listen to, be sure to first LISTEN to Jesus!

Before listening to what people post on social media, LISTEN to Jesus. We listen to Him by opening His word, the Bible.

Before we get into a conversation with others, let’s first talk to our Heavenly Father.

This is a great morning routine! It will change your life. It will change mine! Let’s get ready for tomorrow morning!
