The Epidemic of Busyness
We live margin-less lives. Our personal, professional and church calendars are full to over-flowing. As a matter of fact, busyness for many is a badge of honor. The busier we are, the more important we feel. We take it as a compliment when people say about us, “They work all the time. They are just so busy!”
Our culture is fast-paced. People in many places around the world shake their heads in disbelief and maybe even disapproval as they note how we Americans cram our lives with activity. We Americans are spoiled by the sheer number of options that are available to us each and every day. If we can, it seems we feel we must.
