Just Too Busy

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  
Matthew 6:34

Another Christmas season is upon us. Many of you may find you are already “stressed out” from deciding what gifts to purchase, what food to cook, finishing your decorating, etc. Wouldn’t you like to get off the holiday merry-go-round and just share a meal with family and friends? Perhaps we have allowed the gift giving to get out of hand.

How many times a day do you say, “I’m just too busy to . . . ?” Often we are just too busy to do the things that really matter—the things that have eternal value. This poem has been a good lesson to me.

                                    Too Busy

                                    Too busy to read the Bible
                                    Too busy to wait and pray!
                                    Too busy to speak out kindly
                                     To someone by the way!

                                    Too busy to care and struggle,
                                    To think of the life to come!
                                    Too busy building mansions,
                                    To plan for the Heavenly Home.

                                    Too busy to help a brother
                                    Who faces the winter blast!
                                    Too busy to share his burden
                                    When self in the balance is cast.

                                    Too busy for all that is holy
                                    On earth beneath the sky
                                    Too busy to serve the Master
                                    But not too busy to die.

                                                                    Author Unknown

We are most often stressed by things that have no eternal value, like shopping, decorating, planning parties. Let’s let this poem be a reminder that we need to organize our time to do things that God has for us to do. As we approach this Christmas season, think of the lonely, the hungry, those living in cold homes, the children who may not receive a holiday gift.
