One of the Reasons We are Busy is that We are Supposed to Be

DeYoung finishes his little book with some wonderful balance about busyness - 

"The reason we are busy is because we are supposed to be busy...One of the reasons we struggle so mightily with busyness is because we do not expect to struggle...We simply don't think of our busyness as even a possible part of our cross to bear.  But what if mothering small children isn't supposed to be easy?  What if pastoring a congregation is supposed to be challenging?  What if being a friend, or just being a Christian, is supposed to mean a lot of time-consuming, burden-bearing, gloriously busy, and wildly inefficient work?..." - Crazy Busy, DeYoung, pp101, 103.
