What Matters

At the beginning of this year I told my wife my New Year's resolution was to drink more water. So, naturally, I told her I needed a new water bottle.

"Why do you need a new water bottle to drink more water?" She asked.

The short answer is: I don't.

What I need is to develop a schedule of drinking more water (one glass in the morning, one glass mid-morning, etc.).

Would the new water bottle motivate me to drink more water? Maybe for a couple weeks. But it wouldn't last. 

It's the same with prayer.

When developing a relationship with God, concentrate on what matters - your time.

Perhaps you use the rosary you already have, or read from your grandmothers prayer book.

But, first, schedule a time and stick with it.
