Are You Too Busy?

Quote Logo

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!

Billy Graham

  1. Amen! Thanks for liking my “Be Someone” post! There is something special when we can support our friends by encouraging and acknowledging they matter. Your quote today aligns perfectly with the Be Someone! God is truly awesome! God bless you, Steve!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

  2. Busyness is the temptation of the enemy – anything that draws our attention away from the Lord. May we all slow down and focus on saying “no” to some things so we can say “yes” to the things the Lord wants us to do.

    • Amen. Shelly i’m blessed once again with your amazing wisdom and teaching! So blessed to have you on my journey. Its such a pleasure to see you here. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. And too busy to spend time with our Saviour is the worst ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  4. I absolutely loved this quote….today’s world SO needs to hear this.

  5. A great message. And too busy to meditate and talk to God. The most important things take back seat to our trivial busyness far too often. And what are we so busy doing? Wordly things of lower consciousness.

  6. Couldn’t agree with this more. I’ve just taken a couple of weeks offline and it’s been so beneficial to get back to face to face communication. Would recommend it!

  7. Sometimes it’s not our physical lifes that are so busy, it’s our mental ones. I know that for me today my mind is occupied with some real concerns. It will take serious concentration to even notice anyone else’s struggles. But it’s during our own dark times, when we’re the ones feelng ignored, that we can resolve to not to treat others the same way when our dark clouds move over them.

    • So true Rebecca! The mind is an amazing place that can easily distract you.
      Thanks so much for sharing this comment of wisdom and compassion. I love the way that you and other sisters & brothers expand my simple posts into great teaching of the heart of Jesus! Amazing! God bless you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. This is so true. Sometimes all people need is a smile, a hug, or some time while you listen.

  9. Yes, I am too busy, I confess it right now! And the fact that my quiet time with the LORD has been compromised is the saddest part. May He provide me the wisdom to stop and be there for someone else!

    • Toni, you’re an amazing example of how to show love to others. The way you look after Larry and your family truly inspires me and fills my heart with love. God bless you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
