Hurry Up, Get Busy, Do More

Hurry Up, Get Busy, Do More

Being busy is often part of making things happen. But do constantly frenzied activity and full calendars necessarily mean that anything of value is being accomplished? Knowing the importance of His mission, Jesus lived purposefully rather than hurriedly. He moved from one God-ordained encounter to the next, and taught others to do the same. What can you do to make sure that hurry and busy-ness are not edging God out of your life and leadership?

But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” —Luke 10:40

Prayer: Father, keep us humbly attentive to You. Teach us to keep rhythm with Your Spirit, to live according to Your timetable, not the world’s. Let us move through this day focused on Your mission, following Jesus, in whose name we pray, amen.
