How do you respond to all the needs around you?

Are you frantically busy?

Do you see many needs around you? Do you sometimes wonder, “How can I meet all these needs?” There are many needs, there is one call. What followers of Jesus understand is that the need is not the same as the call. If we think the need is the call, we will soon wear out from the burden of the needs around us. Our call is first to be with Jesus. When we are united to Jesus, we find that our hearts are drawn to what he is doing in the world. When we are sensitive to what Jesus is doing and join him; we sometimes we ignore other demands around us. God is calling us to be faithful to him; we are not called to frantic busyness. – Ron Friesen
