Jan 18, 2015 “Busyness and Sentness” is part 1 in the series on Busyness.
Real life, the blessed, life, is busy. It was busy for Jesus. But it’s also purposeful. Jesus said a huge “yes” to many good things and a huge “no” to other good things because He couldn’t do everything. How wisely are you able to say “yes” and “no” to good things?
D.A. Carson to a seminary student who’s family’s needs kept him from studying for his class final: “It sounds like the most godly thing for you to do is take a C+ in my class.”
Miroslav Volf: “Human choices that truly matter are not between chic and tacky but between justice and oppression, not between useful and ornamental but between good and evil, not between expensive and cheap but between life and death, not between voguish and outmoded, but between God and idols.” (Against the Tide: Love in a Time of Petty Dreams and Persisting Enmities, p. 88)
