Across the Preacher’s Desk: Too Busy For God...

October 13, 2022 - A businessman was sitting at his desk. All around him were bills, letters and other evidence that he was totally absorbed in the details of his business. The minister of the church entered, anxious to discuss the man’s soul. The business man said, “Oh, you must excuse me, brother, I am too busy to take time for that today.”

Politely, the minister asked, “When shall I call on you again?” The business man replied, “I don’t know, and really can’t tell you. I am just too busy right now. I have a lot to take care of.”  With a sad and heavy heart, the minister excused himself and the businessman returned to his paperwork. 

A few days later, a disagreeable stranger stepped into the businessman’s office and laid a cold hand on his shoulder. “Come, you must go home with me” the visitor demanded. The businessman laid down his pen, closed his desk and left. He had no choice. A cold chill settled on him as images of so many things left unfinished flashed before his eyes. The name of his visitor was death.

We may think we are too busy. We may think we don’t have time to obey the Lord and live His kind of life. However, we will someday not be too busy to die.
