Twenty-four hours never feels like enough. If only we had more time! A couple extra hours a day would make all the difference! Or maybe an extra week to be able to catch up, right? (How do I know your thoughts? Because I have the exact same thoughts myself.)
If our motivation is to serve God with our work but also make time with him our #1 priority, we’re on the right track.
THE LIES OF BUSYNESS
“My busyness pleases God.”
Look at my calendar and diary and you’ll see a lot of stuff-deadlines, commitments, responsibilities. I’m sure some people would be impressed at all the “important” things I keep myself busy with.
In the 21st century, our society prizes busyness. “How are you doing?” our friends ask us. “Busy!” we reply, waiting for the sympathy or gold medal we think we deserve as a result of the chaotic life we’ve built for ourselves. Who cares if other people are impressed though? The question is, Does our Creator approve?
Why are you busy? What’s the point of it all? Psalm 39:6 sums up one of my greatest fears for us Christians in our hectic world: “We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing” (Psalm 39:6 NLT). Doesn’t that almost give you chills? Merely moving shadows. Busy rushing that ends in nothing. The last thing I want is for most of my life to be pointless in the scope of eternity, but the truth is that much of my busy rushing is pretty pointless.
Busyness by itself isn’t wrong, but busyness requires intention.
Prayer: God guard me from pointless busyness and if am busy, I want to live busy with a purpose.
One weakness of humans, compared to God, is in our limited knowledge. We do not even know what is happening on the other side of a wall, let alone the other side of the country. We also do not know what people are planning to do, but the Holy Spirit knows everything. And He will help us to pray accurately and effectively.
Stop pretending to like someone’s company, when you surely don’t like it. Be sincere no matter how hurt the feeling becomes, it will be worse after the pretence.
Now, be practical about your HOLINESS! Don’t strife to be Holy, just live holy! Live it as your life! So that the world will see you and glorify God for your sake!
