The Busyness weed

There is a new status in our culture today…the status of being busy:

  • Busy at work
  • Busy having fun
  • Busy planning nights out
  • Busy making money
  • Busy, busy, busy

I once heard someone say that one of the devil’s plans was to help us get so busy that we would let distractions keep us from focusing on God.

One distraction for us is this obsession with being busy. When we are so busy “being-on-the-go” that we hardly ever stop, we don’t make time to listen to God and His purpose for our lives.

I hear it all it the time, “I don’t have time for that…”

Do you have time for:

  • God, 
  • Your family, 
  • Your spouse, 
  • Your friends, 
  • Yourself?

Are you so busy that you haven’t connected with any of these in a while?

“The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.” Luke 8:14

The busyness weed is a sneaky one…

Next post’s weed is…the Money weed.
