Busyness in God’s name?

Attend to what love requires of you, which may not be great busyness.

I blogged about this quote last week, it is a reminder that less can be more. I think it is related to this quote in Catherine Whitmires Plain Living

Pg 36

“How seldom it occurs to us that God has to undo and to do all over again so much of what we in our willfulness have pushed through in God’s name.”

Douglas Steere 1962

I like this idea.  Not that I believe there is some guy in long white robes and a white beard sitting in the sky, but if there was, I could see him shaking is head at yet another committee decision, knowing that it’s still not working, and he’s going to have start over again…
