GOD CALLS BUSY PEOPLE


In the Bible, God never goes to the lazy or the idle when He needs men (or women) for His service. He goes to those who are already at work — the busy person:


— Moses was busy with his flock at Horeb.

— Gideon was busy threshing wheat by the winepress.

— Saul was busy searching for his father's lost beasts.

— David was busy caring for his father's sheep.

— Elisha was busy plowing with twelve yoke of oxen.

— Nehemiah was busy bearing the king's winecup.

— Amos was busy following the flock and raising sycamore fruit.

— Peter and Andrew were busy casting a net into the sea.

— James and John were busy mending their nets.

— Matthew was busy collecting customs.

— Saul was busy persecuting the friends of Jesus.
