One-Minute Devotionals reveal in a single sentence, underlying truth about specific Scripture.

Just a little sleep, just a little slumber, just a little nap. Then your poverty will come like a drifter,
and your need will come like a bandit.

Pr 6:10-11

Live it..
Sleep is good, unless you do it when you shouldn't. After a hard day's work and after a hot shower, it's good. While driving a car, it's bad. When you sit in a recliner to watch golf on television Sunday afternoon, it's unavoidable. Sitting in church when you didn't get much the night before, it's inescapable. If you fail to rest when you sleep, being irritable is inevitable. However, falling asleep when you're on guard duty is unforgivable and the consequences unthinkable. Yes, sleeping on the job is bad, but there may be one thing even worse and that's being awake and not paying attention. "Hello... Is anyone still listening?"

Pray it
Thank you, God, for rest, that allows me to pay attention to what You're doing around me.
