There's a saying that has been quoted for many years, especially related to romance, as though it were absolutely true: "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." Experience has shown otherwise in many incidents. It is often more true that "absence makes the heart wander." This is true in our relationship with Jesus. If you do not invest time in getting to know Him, you will be growing further away from Him. This is why regular [daily, non-negotiable, significant, and prime] time with Jesus is so important.
Remember, you are spending time with Jesus to get to know Him as a friend, not just to put in time!
