C.J. Mahaney on being ‘Busy’

This is an excellent post from C.J. Mahaney! He provides a sobering look at ‘being busy’. We live in a world where we have endless options, and what seems to be, millions of things to do. So take a few minutes, a break, and read this pastor’s heart…here is an excerpt;

“I forget now who first brought these points to my attention. But the realization that I could be simultaneously busy and lazy, that I could be a hectic sluggard, that my busyness was no immunity from laziness, became a life-altering and work-altering insight. What I learned is that:

  • Busyness does not mean I am diligent
  • Busyness does not mean I am faithful
  • Busyness does not mean I am fruitful

Recognizing the sin of procrastination, and broadening the definition to include busyness, has made a significant alteration in my life. The sluggard can be busy—busy neglecting the most important work, and busy knocking out a to-do list filled with tasks of secondary importance.”
