Never Too Busy

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed,
came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion.

Luke 10:33

It's easy to become so busy that you are oblivious to those
in need. Your schedule can become so full of accomplishing
good things that you are of no help to the people around you.
God is at work in the lives of your friends, your neighbors,
your family members. He may ask you to interrupt your day
long enough to join Him as He ministers to them. Nothing on
your agenda, no matter how pressing, is reason enough to ignore
the voice of God when He tells you to stop and help. If you have
become too busy to minister to those around you, ask God to re-
establish your priorities so that you do not miss opportunities
to serve Him.

  1. This is a "right now" word. We are focusing on this in church. We will make a difference if we stop and listen for His direction.

  2. Wow. I needed this. I'm about to email someone at church who asked me to do something that I turned down. But now I'm thinking I need and want to do it.
