Too Busy To Serve
by Larry Burkett
Nothing interferes with our ability to serve God more than our need to earn a living. The simple truth is most Americans are too busy to serve God.
We have grown complacent and comfortable in God’s material blessings and have forgotten the first commandment. In the meantime, immorality and cults have grown to alarming proportions, because their advocates are more zealous in their dedication.
Since God asks for obedience, rather than demanding it, many Christians simply ignore the very reason for their existence: to glorify God.
Without exception, God has a unique and meaningful plan for every believer, and it does not depend on age, income, or ability.
God calls each of us to fulfill His plan and we have to decide either to be used by Him or to be bypassed. What a loss if we allow temporary comforts and laziness to rob us of true riches, both now and for all eternity.
Ask God to reveal to you if you have been “too busy to serve.”
