Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

May 20, 2011 (busy as a bee)

busy as a bee

It is good to work hard.
Extreme busyness…
leaving no time for God however,
stunts your spiritual growth.

“The weight of so many
responsibilities and distractions
- even the worthwhile ones -
has a crushing effect
on a person's relationship with Christ.
It ruins our taste for spiritual things.
It suppresses our exuberance for spiritual service.
It suffocates our passion for pursuing Christ
and the intimate relationship He offers.
It all grinds away at our soul.
Eventually, following Jesus starts to lose its luster.
The blessings and joys of walking with Him
are crowded out by myriad tiny details of life.”
- John MacArthur
