You know how you sometimes get sleepy after eating a big meal? That happened to me last week when my family got together for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a huge feast, then I sat down on the couch to watch the small children play. Before I knew it my eyes got heavy and would not stay open.
My 2-year-old great nephew noticed that I had dozed off and announced to everyone in the room—“Him asleep.”
There’s nothing wrong with taking a nap when you are tired, but we must be careful not to be spiritually sleep-walking through life. We have to stay alert at all times.
“And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.”—Romans 13:11.
