When I think about busyness and reflect on whether my life is getting out of rhythm, I really start to wonder being "busy for the Kingdom" is perhaps harmful. "Doing a little more for Jesus" might mean our rhythm of life is off.
I don't agree with those who say that busy-ness or the demands of our jobs make it hard for us to live lives of free and gracious giving.
I love being busy, and I need frequent reminders to rest. I’m not the right person to write advice about how to rest well! What I can do, though, is to reflect on the gift of rest--a gift that I have received through others’ generosity and ministry.
