Have you ever heard of ‘killing time’? Have you ever done it? This concept is not in principle consistent with the abundant life I offer you. It is no blessing to have too much idle time on your hands.
Yet there are those who are perpetually overwhelmed who wish they had time to kill, but this is not abundant life either. The writer of Proverbs asked me to feed him with the proper amount of food, lest he have too much or too little. The same principle applies just as effectively to activities. You can lead a life that is full and productive and satisfying and at the same time find that my yoke is easy and my burden is light. This is the abundant life of those who are led by my Spirit.
