We’re all busy, aren’t we?

Posted on 9/12/2016 by Greg Yoder

So many of us say we’re too busy, but are we? I remember my kids asking me to play games, throw a ball, or just hang out together. Often my answer was, “I’d love to, but I’m really busy.” I still have one at home, and I’ve learned from my previous mistakes. I need to make time for my daughter—shooting baskets or just hanging out. If we can’t make time of our kids, how are we going make time for God? The reality is when we say we’re too busy, it’s a priority issue. We value work, television, and hobbies—you name it. Being busy isn’t a spiritual gift. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.” When we really know Him, skewed priorities can be corrected quickly.
