I have tried to imagine our Lord and Exemplar, Jesus Christ, bustling between meetings or multitasking to get a list of urgent things accomplished.
I can’t see it.
Instead I see the compassionate and caring Son of God purposefully living each day. When He interacted with those around Him, they felt important and loved. He knew the infinite value of the people He met. He blessed them, ministered to them. He lifted them up, healed them. He gave them the precious gift of His time.
I’m moving in a little under two weeks. Between now and then I’m going to finish the Book of Mormon (I stopped tonight at Alma 17.) and complete 15 one-sitting Personal Progress value experiences. No biggie. I can do this, right?
It’s not like I need to pack everything I own, attend church meetings/magnify my calling, work 40 hours a week, go to the temple, eat, or SLEEP. RIGHT?!
Whatever. This is happening. It must.
If you don’t have time to pray and read your scriptures, then you are busier than God ever intended for you to be.
