When you choose to follow Jesus, some of your choices may be misunderstood. For example, taking time away from pressing matters to be still and meditate on God‘s Word can seem indulgent—even irresponsible—to those who have different priorities. It’s easy to become preoccupied with life that your fellowship with God takes a backseat. Yet your relationship with Jesus is the most important one in your life. He gives you the spiritual sustenance to tackle the challenges with wisdom and grace. So don’t fret over what others say. At the end of the day, when all else is forgotten, your relationship with Christ is what really counts.
