Mind Your Own Busyness

It seems to me that Americans have a love/hate relationship with busyness. On the one hand, we hate that our schedules are crammed so full that we have almost no margin in our lives. However, when people ask us how we are doing, we often smile and say “I have been sooo busy lately” with no shame. It’s like we can see that our lives have gotten out of control, and yet we are weirdly proud of it. The purpose of this series is to think about these issues through a biblical lens.
