The Biggest Button

“My button is bigger than your button!” No. I’m not referring to the texting battle between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un. My snooze button is larger than your snooze button. Even if it is not, that button can sure do a lot of damage to an otherwise productive day. Yes, you snooze, you lose – and so does everyone else.


The problem with Peter, James and John was not only that they took naps while on guard duty instead of praying for themselves and for Jesus (see Matthew 26:36-46). They also missed the opportunity to do something personal for Jesus who did everything for them. An opportunity they would never get again.

How big is your snooze button?

Proverbs 24:33-34 (NIV)
“A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest– and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.”
