In contrast to Jesus’ purposeful movement through life, many of us live like jugglers who are trying to keep too many balls in the air. Being busy defines our days. We move between family, work, church, and community activities with scarcely time to breathe. In the mix, Sabbath and solitude often get lost. “Later,” we think, only to find that we have worn ourselves out with all our coming and going. What about you? Is your relationship with God the top priority in your life, or just one part of your life?
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. —John 15:5
Prayer: Lord, we confess that we frequently live by own choices and agendas. We substitute packed schedules and overwhelming ‘to do’ lists for Sabbath and solitude. May we, like Jesus, prioritize time and connection with You. Live through us, we pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
