"Busy. It's really crazy right now."
"We should get together sometime."
"Maybe when things slow down."
Busy, busy, busy. It's an epidemic if not an addiction. We boast of how many emails we get, how full our calendar is, how sleep-deprived we are...how busy.
All in stark contrast to:
"Be still, and know that I am God." (Ps. 46:10)
"Come ye...apart...and rest awhile." (Mark 6:31)
"In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." (Isaiah 30:15)
Lord save us from ourselves.
