Sleep, school, chores, activities … life gets busy quick! The world tells us that busier equals happier. But that’s not always true.
“I have tried to imagine [Jesus Christ] bustling between meetings or multitasking to get a list of urgent things accomplished,” President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said. “I can’t see it. Instead I see the compassionate and caring Son of God purposefully living each day.”1
Maybe now is a good time to rethink your schedule. Are you giving time back to God and those around you? Some of the most important parts of each day are when we:
- Pray and ponder.
- Spend time with family.
- Study scriptures.
- Help those in need.
And here’s a secret: doing these things actually helps us accomplish all the other items on our to-do list. We promise!
