perhaps, busyness isn’t it….
Ephesians 4:17 in the Message, says it this way:- “And so I insist—and God backs me up on this—that there be no going along with the crowd, the empty-headed, mindless crowd.

If you find that ministry is challenging because of the load, I’m with you, but perhaps busyness isn’t the primary issue! It’s maybe not about the demands on your time.
