Busy Busy Busy

Here is a haunting little post from Mere Comments suggesting that our supremely important (if you listen to the politicians) economy - even our whole society - seems naturally geared to form us into people like those who missed out on the "great banquet" of Luke 14:16-24, as this blogger says:

"I've often thought of our modern economy as based on the multiplication as many things and pleasures -- and increasingly time-consuming tasks (how long does it take to fill out endless forms, tax returns, drive to work?) -- as possible to take our minds off God and eternal matters."

I wonder what we as the Church are going to do about it? Hurry down to the mall on our Sabbath and fight the crowds to catch the last Christmas sales?
