Busy Times

Picture 208

If you look around you, you will probably see busy people; there’s a good chance that you are one of them.  All over town we can see people going to and fro, traffic jams and crowded stores.  In larger cities there are buses and trains full of people on their way to work.

In any newspaper there are articles and statistics reporting the latest economic information, trends and action…

In the midst of all of this activity it can be easy to forget what is truly important in life; it’s so very easy to forget that the dollar is not the center of things. However busy we are, however much buying and selling that may go on, however many people might be obsessed with money, however much attention may be paid to “main street,” God is still ruling over the universe.

Sadly, most of us go through our days paying attention to everything else, being influenced by the popular culture and distracted.  but even though we might take our eye off the ball, God is still there.

How much better life is when we remember this; when we remember that God is in control and that He is there for us.  How much better life is when we keep in mind that His truth reigns and that money, while necessary in modern life, is not our hope. Let us all place our hope and faith in God who is eternal and always reliable.  Let us never place our hope in things that pass away!

  1. I believe that too many people get wrapped up in “He who has the most toys wins.” They lose sight of their blessings, and that God graces us with a new beginning everyday.
