For many of us, busyness is like a badge of honor. We take pride in running from the moment our feet hit the floor in the morning to the moment our heads hit the pillow at night.
But busyness can also be a tool of the enemy. It distracts us from what really matters in life. We can’t do it all. Sooner or later, something has to give.
Recent surveys detail what people say they’re sacrificing to their busyness:
56 percent lost sleep
52 percent cut back on recreation
51 percent quit hobbies
44 percent spent less time with friends
34 percent sacrificed time with their families
The secular survey didn’t ask about faith, but time with the Lord is often one of the first things to go when we’re too busy.
