In Soul Keeping, Ortberg points out what we already know: we’re busy.
Being busy is not the same as being hurried. Being hurried is much more harmful. You don’t always want to be busy, but you really don’t want to be hurried.
We have a full schedule
There are many activities
It’s an outward condition
It’s physically demanding
It reminds me I need God
We are preoccupied
We’re unable to be fully present
It’s an inner condition of the soul
It’s spiritual draining
It causes me to be unavailable to God
We know life is busy.
Don’t let life be hurried.
