On being busy

Busy is better than bored, but fruitful is better than busy. The Lord reminded me of this as we prayed with some at our Church this evening. He had spoken this to me earlier.

My life is filled with work. It's not that I'm worried about making a living......I just like to work. But maybe there is a part of me under the surface that believes that by working more and harder, there will be more provision. But Jesus said "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well"

Here's the problem with being busy: it leaves insufficient room for relationships and the work of ministry that could happen in relationship. Somehow I must change to be more fruitful and less busy.
