a few quotes on busyness

25 05 2007

To go along with yesterday’s post, here’s a few quotes on busyness.

It’s not easy to be peaceful and joyful in a world so full of busyness, sadness, pain, and frustrations.  But I don’t have to do this in my own feebleness, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) ~ Kathy Ridpath

Do you sometimes wonder if our busyness — even for God — is often what’s keeping us from being what God wants us to be? ~ Kay Arthur

We wear our busyness like a badge. ~ Joyce Meyer

Many people engage in activity for activity’s sake and use busyness as a device to avoid facing reality.  Just as alcohol can deaden the senses to personal relationships, family obligations, and community responsibilities, so also constant work can be a narcotic.  It dulls our sensitivity to the deeper issues of life. ~ Mart De Haan
