HOWEVER, I have received invitations to various walks, demonstrations, protests, Bible studies, etc. Obviously the explanation of what people are busy with.
Let me be REALLY blunt.
If I don't care about people's personal needs,
I cannot expect them to care about my political or religious agendas.
If I am so busy protecting my constitutional right that I miss protecting those Jesus said we are right to care about, I've missed Him.
If I am too busy with my social functions that I forget how the body of Christ is supposed to function, I am just a clanging gong taking up space.
If I am too busy reading about how Jesus loved to actually love in practice, I am missing the boat, and people are missing Jesus.
And sometimes the love of Jesus looks like someone moving a couch, mowing a yard, dropping off a meal, driving someone to the hospital, helping with a baby, picking up medicine, or just sitting a spell and talking.
