screaming urgencies

As we begin the week on this Sunday, let’s think about putting important things in life ahead of the urgent. Let us not allow screaming urgencies to drown out the need to focus on the important.

Consider this tweet from yesterday:

Are attempts to be busy in ministry & achieve great things “for God” simply our attempt to compensate for a lack of personal depth with God?

In this question, ministry is urgent… and developing personal depth with God is important.

When ‘mission’ takes precedence over people, urgent has replaced important.

What urgency (screaming or quiet) in your life is crowding out important in your life.
