Are You Too Busy?

Are you too busy?  Busy for what, you may ask.   My husband and I have found over the years, that many times people are “too busy” to do things that they do not want to do, but they are never too busy to do the things that they do want to do.  Should this be?  We have family members that say they are “too busy” to have us over for dinner, but that they would be available months down the road.   But what if they really wanted to have someone over for dinner?  We know that they are not too busy for that, but find the time because it is something they want to do.  We know other people who do not answer emails because they are “too busy”.

“Too busy” is too often a very sad excuse.  Websters 1828 dictionary defines busy thus:

“Employed with constant attention; engaged about something that renders interruption inconvenient; as, a man is busy in posting his books”

Note the above, engaged with something that renders interruption inconvenient.  Inconvenience, that is the key.  “I am too busy, I don’t want to be bothered because I am too busy doing other things and I will get around to you eventually”..

What should be the attitude of a Christian?

Galatians 6:9 “And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

So let us never be weary in well-doing, and let us always be ready to help a person who may ask,  and let us never be so busy with things of this world that we cannot or do not want to  spend quality time wherever or however it is asked of us.
