What is the antidote to empty busyness?

Psalm 90:12Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Moses’ simple prayer ought to cross our lips on a regular basis. Wise people understand that our short lives are wasted unless God helps us redeem the time.

Ephesians 5:15-18, 20Be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. . . . Be filled with the Holy Spirit. . . . And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Empty busyness creates a meaningless life. The key to overcoming empty busyness is to let God shape your choices and activities. Think carefully about his call and purpose for your life, and prioritize your activities around them. God will empower you to make the most of the time he has given you.

The man who is always available isn’t worth much when he is available.
