Are we addicted to being busy?
When the voices pop up in you head, do you default to “I’m going to go to work…”?
How much time do you spend being quiet and alone?
How many jobs do you work so your kids can have a better xbox?
When you meet someone on the street, is your first question, “What do you do?”
Do you find yourself with less and less time to spend on, well, anything? Being busy is like a drug – the more we give to it, the more it demands of us.
What has “being busy” taken from you?
This is the world of human doings – not human beings (That is not my quote, but I am too busy right now to look up the person that said it first.)
Psalm 46:10 tells us to “Be still and know that I am God…” But those that are addicted to busy cannot be still long enough to KNOW. The rest of verse 10 gives us a promise that I am looking forward to seeing fulfilled: “I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Jesus, calm this storm.
