Why Spiritual Things Seem Less Important

"If we spend sixteen hours a day dealing with tangible things of our world, and only five minutes a day trying to find God, it is not wonder that the tangible things are two hundred times as real to us as God is."
--  Dean Inge (as quoted in Achieving Christian Perfection by Bishop Marshall R. Reed, p. 55)

"God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars." -Martin Luther

Spending five minutes a day trying to find God sounds like the person who's always looking for their glasses when they're right there in front of their eyes!
