"It matters little whether you are the mother of active children who drain away your energy, an important executive in a major multinational corporation, a graduate student cramming for impending comprehensives, a plumber working overtime to put your children through college, or a pastor of a large church putting in ninety-hour weeks: at the end of the day, if you are too busy to pray, you are too busy. Cut something out."
-D.A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation
Ouch. That hits home. Too busy to commune with the living God? Too busy to cast my cares upon the One who cares for me perfectly? It seems impossible, but it's what I tell myself every time I cut my devotions short. . .
