Christmas and Busy seem like two words that are joined at the hip for most folks. During my devotion time this morning I read a couple good things....Here is the first for you:
The first is from the Max Lucado Inspirational Bible:
"Being busy is not a sin. Jesus was busy. Paul was busy. Nothing of significance is achieved without effort and hard work and weariness. That, in and of itself, is not a sin. Beut being busy in an endless pursuit of things that leave us empty and hollow and broken inside---- that can not be pleasing to God. Remember this Christmas season....In the midst of your busyness, the Cross is still there. In the midst of your emptiness, the Cross is still there. The promises of Jesus still stand today. You can claim peace in the midst of a hectic life when Jesus is the focus." (Italics not in original)."
Our challenge then is to determine if our business this Christmas season is achieving something of significance or just filling up or time and leaving us empty.
