  • How busy are you?

    By Don Powell, Gideons

    How often have you asked someone to come to church with you and they say; I would but I have so many things to do, or, I’m so busy, I just don’t have the time? Sound familiar?
    I think most Christians have heard these excuses about being busy, at one time or another.
    In the Gospel of Luke, chapter 9, verses 57-62, Jesus asked the people to follow him and one person said he first needed to go and bury his father, while another said he had to go and say goodbye to those at home.
