Ireland Hello and welcome to the newest and most unique Freedom Concept on the Internet.
Money itself is not an interference in our walk with God… the love of money is. I think the following passage sums this up quite nicely: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own". Media This is probably one of the biggest distractions for me personally right now. It is so easy to get caught up in the media. Everywhere we turn, some sort of media is right in our face. I could literally go on and on about the media, and how distracting it is.

For other people, church activities, youth group, Bible studies, can be a way of making us feel like we are right with God. We are right with God because of what Jesus has done for us, not because of how many church services we attend.
Every kind of relationship has the potential to fall into this category. We can allow any of these relationships to distract us from God. It is our relationships that are our connection with the world, and it is our human nature to have them, but when we allow any one of these relationships to become more important to us than our relationship with God…well, they become a distraction.
Remember, God calls us to love one another 1 John 3: I would have to say the relationship with the most danger of becoming a distraction from our walk with God would be that of a boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse.
These relationships in their nature, demand the most time, and that is why it is extremely important that they are centered around God.
In a nutshell, relationships are extremely important, but our relationship with God is of the utmost importance. Routine This is a common thing I allow myself to get distracted by all the time. Does God have a place in your daily schedule?
Far too often, we just squeeze God in when we have spare time I am extremely guilty of this. I often find sleep getting in the way! So make sure spending time with God is the first thing your put in your routine, not the last!
