2 Samuel 11. 1
" In the spring, when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab ... but David stayed in Jerusalem."
Most of us have heard the familiar story of how David fell into adultery with Bathsheba. Notice that his sinful action sprung from his impure thoughts. And those thoughts took shape when he was relaxing at home instead of busy doing kings' work!
We all know that there are times when it is necessary to rest. But we were also made to do productive work.
Once in awhile I get grumpy when I feel I have too much to do! But a little voice speaks to me saying, " You're probably better off busy then idle."
Most of us sometimes feel too busy! But as we seek to find God's balance for our lives, let us always be thankful for plenty to do. It is probably safer!
