Are You A Busybody?

by | Jan 3, 2012 | Church Leadership, Church Planting

II Thessalonians 3:11 says, “We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.”

Most of us major in minors and minor in majors.  It’s so hard to keep the main thing the main thing isn’t it?  Before you know it, we’re focused on the urgent instead of the important. What’s important?  Knowing Christ.  Philippians 3:8 says, “I Consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ.”

There is way too much sideways energy in the kingdom of God.  We’re way too busy doing insignificant things instead of being about the Father’s business!  Our #1 priority?  It’s simple: “seek ye first the kingdom of heaven.”

Is seeking God the first order of your day?  Is it the overarching priority during your downtime?  Is it the #1 objective every day?

If seeking God is our #1 priority, we’ll probably watch a lot less TV and spend a lot more time in His word.  If seeking God is our #1 priority, we’ll probably listen to talk radio a lot less and talk to God a lot more.   If seeking God is our #1 priority, we’ll probably worship the almighty dollar a lot less and worship God a lot more.

Let’s not be busybodies who are going nowhere fast.

Let’s get busy seeking God.
