But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him
(Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)

We often look at the word "faith" here but often miss the words "diligently seek him". I've often looked at my life and the others around me and wondered if the Facebook, TV, Sports, Movies, video games, and more is diligently seeking Him. I'm not talking about a casual practice of these but those who are spending more time in these, independently or combined, more than they spend with God. As I dwelled on the verse you used here, I felt compelled to find the definition of diligent and it was something other than I expected. DILIGENT: having or showing care and conscientiousness in one's work or duties:. Considering the fact that we are to be about our Fathers work, this term "diligently seeking him" all of a sudden is changed when we see the care we should be taking in our work, or duties, given us by Christ - "spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the ends of the Earth"
