To-Do List

Thursday Thoughts and your “to-do” list

By on July 14, 2016

“Beware of outstripping God by your very longing to do His will. We run ahead of Him in a thousand and one activities, consequently we get so burdened with persons and with difficulties that we do not worship God, and forget to intercede with prayer. The pressure turns to hardness toward God and despair in our souls. So when opportunity comes, where God is introducing us to people we are not normally inclined to, we may treat then carelessly, blow them off or leave them with some shallow counsel. A heartless, Christian must be a terrible grief to God.” —¬†Oswald Chambers

This is a tough one for me, because I like my to-do list and feel good when I check it off, I even have an app for it. Funny, there are no names on it, just a list of stuff to do.

But, truly kindness and consideration matters most. The to-do list will be there tomorrow. We should not be so busy, we do not have time to care.
