Intro: This is an add on from a short little message I did last Thursday on vacation from a mountain top we were at and I gave more thoughts on being too busy. Then was lead to this thought that one of the prime dangers for Christians today is getting so busy that we up losing our spiritual focus.

Especially as the pace of society hastens, this is a real danger to spiritual growth! Think about this one, most Christians follow this model, we work for 6 days and rest on Sunday where we attend Church, worship with fellow believers and feed on His Word.

But is it enough, that we feed on God’s Word only once a week?

How about this, do many of us do fall into this category? We wind down at the end of the day in front of the TV or with our mobile phones. We sleep and again get up the next morning and get back to the same routine as the day before.

Yet we take out time for other “fun” things, but somehow everything related to God at times, takes a backseat. So this question arises, are we or have we become too busy for God?

Yet more these days I have seen many are caught up with things such as mobile phones, TV, Internet, or self indulgence or things of life and so forth when you think about it, these become the very things that keep you busy.

I am sure it is Satan’s ploy to keep us busy and to keep us so engrossed us in the things of the world and things of the flesh that we don’t think much of our Spiritual wellbeing or to the closeness to the end of this Age.

Satan knows his time is short. We ourselves can see how close we are to the end of days due to the way people are acting and they way they are treating each other, or the way life has become.

More so I have seen how low humanity is stooping where even innocent children are not spared. Since it is not happening to us, we do not concern ourselves with it.

I feel that the intensity of evil is increasing just like it was in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot. We are bombarded with so much bad news that evil has lost its shock value, we become so numb to it, it no longer fazes us when we hear of such things.

What happens to many of us is, when we deeply sense our need for God we make time for Him. And yet, sometimes even Christians gets so busy they don't study, don't pray, and don't even think about the future.

Yes many needs to make a living, we have to go to work, we have to take care of our family and our needs, but do those things become the focus of our lives? As someone once said, "Don't confuse busy-ness with growth." What about you? Are you growing? Or are you just busy?

Reading: Luke 10:38-42 - Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”


Title: Busy Bee’s

Have be ourselves become like Martha and became so busy in our lives or with things in our lives that we are now distracted from the finer things of life?

Have we missed out on what God has done for us because we too are so busy in focusing on other things beside listening or serving God.

Many of us today we have become so distracted, many are now caught up in busyness because were not willing to take time to chill out, or even bother to sit down to hear from God and even listen to what he is trying to tell us.

Busyness is a very dangerous things for us and if were so caught up with it, we can fall into a trap and find ourselves so far from God, we will end up growing cold.

When you think about it, in today’s times many are more hurried than our ancestors were in the past. Yes they were busy but they understood the value of time to take off and relax and enjoy life to its fullest.
