STUFFITUS

 

‘There’s much to do,

There’s work on every hand”

 

     So goes the refrain of an old song.  I used to hear one preacher say, “The faster I go the behinder I get.”  When the day is finished, the tasks are still beckoning.  When all the energy is used and the body screams for rest, there are still things that reach out in the night and call for us to do.

 

     Some cynic has said that all the time saving devices have given us the opportunity to moonlight at a second job to pay for them.  The average American is working longer hours than his parents.  The average American gets about seven hours of sleep.  Maybe you feel it would be great to get that many hours for a change.

 

     Solomon wrote three thousand years ago: “Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might”  (Ecc. 9:10).  Yet we work hard to get ahead and find at years end that we are farther behind than last year.  We make more but we spend more.  There is no satisfaction to this way of living.  When I stop to smell the roses, I want to know how much they cost.

 

       On the desk of the busy executive were three stacks of  papers:

To do, Much to do, and Much to do about nothing.

 

       It is easy to get caught up in the “stuffitus” of our generation. God is coming back to this earth to take His own.  He will find us working on every hand, doing things at a furious pace and moving from job to job at a rapid speed.  But will He find us doing what is really important?  Are we spending our time on the Much to do about Nothing category?
