Busyness: The Enemy of Spirituality

If you regularly find yourself explaining your week based upon how busy you are then this is worth the five minutes to read and ten minutes to pray over.

Christians can be worse than anyone at sharing their busyness.  Maybe it’s because we have the ‘normal’ stuff of work and family but with an added layer of busyness called ‘church’.  But it’s a disaster when church becomes just another thing on the ‘to do’ list.  What message does this convey to our communities?  “Come to church – we’ll give you more stuff to stress about!”
