…so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. Col 1:10 NIV
For years, when people would ask me how I was I would answer, “I’m busy.” Because to be honest, I was busy.
But then I began to think about what Jesus’ response would be if someone asked Him how He was. I can say with 100% certainty that He wouldn’t have answered with, “I’m busy.”
God never told us to be busy. He told us to be fruitful. My question to myself and to you is this: ‘Is your “busy” fruitful or just busy.’
Jesus had 3 years to save the entire world. Yet not once in the Bible did He say, “I’m busy.” Jesus constantly stopped what He was doing to spend time to heal, talk, eat, and many other things with people.
His was NEVER too busy for anyone.
So the next time someone asks me how I am, I want to answer that, “I am fruitful.” In order to do that there will be times that I will have to stop being “busy” so that I can help someone else.
Just something I have been thinking about…
Until next time blessings and healing
