day no. 13,044: only when it's convenient for you

Acts 24:25
As Paul talked about righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.
Felix called Paul when it was convenient. 
He liked hearing truth when he liked hearing truth. 
When he didn’t like hearing it, he shut it off and turned a deaf ear and hardened heart to it. 
He picked and chose. 
That is convenient, but that isn’t the whole truth and nothing but the one truth sets one free
Don’t make the same mistake of hearing only what you want to hear and becoming yourself the arbiter of what truths you will accept from God and which ones you reject or have no time for hearing.
