Very Busy Or Too Busy

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been extremely busy. In some ways that’s a good thing: ministry is happening, relationships are developing, business is taking place.

But…

…there’s a danger when very busy becomes too busy.

How do I know I’ve crossed the line? I think this quote from Billy Graham sums it up:

“We hurt people by being too busy. Too busy to notice their needs. Too busy to drop that note of comfort or encouragement or assurance of love. Too busy to listen when someone needs to talk. Too busy to care.”

If someone needs me and I’m too busy to give them me, then very busy has become too busy.

How do you know if you’ve gotten too busy?

    Since I asked the question, I’ll go first.

    I know I’m too busy when… I don’t have time to catch up with my kids on how their day went, or have one-on-one time with Betsy.

    I know I’m too busy when someone is asking me something and I just continually say ugh huh yeah…or when I simply don’t answer because I’ve begun to tune them out.

    Most of the time a person can tell if I’m busy and they say they will let me go. And that’s when I realize the obvious,apoligize,and stop what I was doing.
