“Give them Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny to divert their attention from our enemy’s incarnation, life, sacrifice and resurrection. Even in their exercise, let them be excessive. Make them return from their recreation exhausted. Keep them too busy when they are in nature to behold the Creators glory.
“Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts and movie theaters instead. Keep them busy, busy, busy. Crowd their lives with so many good causes that they have no time to seek power from their Lord. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause.”
“It will work. It will work,” shouted all of Satan’s demons in unison. The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier and busier. More rushed and spread far too thin going here and there seeking meaning and purpose. Having little time to sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from Him. Having little time to tell others about His saving grace and His immeasurable love.
The question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes? Does “busy” mean B-eing U-nder S-atan’s Y-oke? You be the judge.
