“I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.
Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.
Highly practical and super short, Crazy Busy will help you put an end to “busyness as usual.”
“Busyness is like sin: kill it, or it will be killing you.” (source)
“The first danger is that busyness can ruin our joy.” (source)
“keep in mind this simple question: Am I trying to do good or to make myself look good?” (source)
“Jesus knew the difference between urgent and important. He understood that all the good things he could do were not necessarily the things he ought to do.” (source)
“‘Margin,’ Swenson says, ‘is the space between our load and our limits.’9 Planning for margin means planning for the unplannable. It means we understand what’s possible for us as finite creatures and then we schedule for less than that.” (source)
