We Shall Do Greater Things is Not About Being Busy

Luke 5:16 tells us that "Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray."

I'm thinking, first of all, that I don't do that, at least, not "often" enough.

I'm also thinking that if Jesus did that, just how awesome do I think I am that I don't?

Just the day before yesterday, I was meditating on Ephesians 5:15-17: "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."

I also just turned down a nomination to an important committee in my church and find affirmation in your words.
