In the video game Batman: Arkham City if you venture below the Courthouse, you can talk to an obscure Gotham rogue named Calendar Man who is locked up in a cell in the basement. The observant gamer will notice a calendar on the wall next to his cell with 12 days circled.
- January 1st (New Years Day)
- February 14th (Valentines Day)
- March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day)
- April 1st (April Fools Day)
- May 13th (Mothers Day)
- June 19th (Father’s Day)
- July 4th (Independence Day)
- August 16th (Feast Day of Saint Roch)
- September 5th (Labor Day)
- October 31st (Halloween)
- November 24th (Thanksgiving)
- December 25th (Christmas)
If you play the game on those days in real life, then talk to Calendar Man on each of them, he will tell you a story about a crime he committed on that day. The corresponding month will also be crossed off the calendar. If you play the game on each of those 12 days for a year, you will unlock a trophy (or an achievement) for it.
People actually do this for an imaginary trophy, something that has no effect on the game whatsoever. Yet we, as believers, often struggle to commit to spending time in scripture and prayer each day, something that yields great power and wonderful results. The word encourages us to be like the psalmist who proclaims, “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You” and “When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the [night] watches.” (Psalm 6:31, 6)
Day and night God desires us to seek Him. Let us set our calendar for our daily date with Jesus… and NOW you’re playing with power!
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6
