Human Busyness vs. God’s Business
March 6, 2009

“Why that rushing around? Don’t tell me it’s activity: It’s confusion!” – Jose Escriva

Our calendars, day timers, PDAs, Blackberries, and iPhones are bursting with meetings, tasks, jobs, programs, events … every minute is scheduled; every hour is full.

Perhaps it’s time to schedule in a few hours to do some serious evaluation:

  • How much of my schedule is about my busyness, and how much is about God’s business?
  • How much stress am I experiencing on a daily basis? What is the source of that stress?
  • Do I make time for a Sabbath rest each week? Or do I keep on going 24/7?
  • Do I spend quality time with my family? That is, unrushed, uncluttered time when I am not multi-tasking?
  • How much time do I have for cultivating deep friendships?
  • Do I have the freedom for spontaneity in my schedule?
  • Do I have time for personal creativity and recreation?
  • How am I engaged in using my spiritual gifts to further God’s kingdom?
  • Am I focused on what is urgent, or on what is important?
  • Do I have trouble being still and silent because my thoughts are always whirling to the next thing on my list?

After careful reflection, ask yourself the following:

  • Do I need to make changes in my life? If so, what are they and how will I go about making them?
