Binge Spirituality

I had a good Quiet Time today. But there is one problem, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

It's the going for days just treading water - simply saying Morning Prayer from the Church of England's Common Worship, but going no deeper.

For my Bible study part, I use Explore from the Good Book Company. But I have got into the habit of not studying the Bible daily.

Yes, I tell myself - unemployed - that I don't have time, yet I find time to play chess against the computer, Tweet and use Facebook, as well as watching DVDs.

And then I binge - do a massive Quiet Time to somehow make up for all the ones I've missed. It is not healthy spiritually, and just reminds me that what is needed is faithful self-discipline.
