Beneath Busy

In this first lesson of the series, Phil looked at Jesus’ interaction with a cripple from John 5 and explained that Jesus first had to fix the problem underneath the surface (the man’s addiction to his ailment), before he could fix the issue above the surface (being a cripple).  The same principle rings true for us in our relationship to busyness.  Our first step is to simply acknowledge that a hurried, frenetic, anxious life (even one that is highly productive), is not the kind of life Jesus has called us to.  Jesus actually invites us into a healthier rhythm of life, where our best work flows out of our deepest rest.
