Here’s the honest truth: this project titled “How to Be Less Busy” has been sitting on my desk for the past
forty-four 51 days. I’ve missed the deadline on completing it four times. Every time I’ve set about to get this thing done, some other dramatic need swoops in to tyrannize my time. I’ve just been too busy to write about not being too busy.
The very nature of evil is when we presume our own selves to have more value than anyone else’s.
It is this force that convinces us that we are more important than our neighbor, more important than God. It is this force which compels us to believe that our own desires trump love, peace, and justice. It is this force that tells us our value is negotiable, and it is up to us alone to protect and defend that value.
