The Difference Between Being Busy and Being Hurried

“There is a difference between simply being busy and being hurried. Being busy is about the things you have to do. Being hurried is the spiritual, mental, and emotional state that you are in when trying to do the things you have to do. You can be busy without being hurried…Hurriedness is like a strong wind that blows on the waters of your heart. If the waves are too high, you forget about others and focus on your own survival, making compassion toward others impossible.” – Darrin Patrick, Church Planter  [emphasis mine]

Challenge: When you feel the stress rising of all the things you have to get done, slow down, make a list, and ask God to guide you away from the hurriedness.
