References: Acts 9We live in a world that is preoccupied with personality, and the influence of high-profile celebrities has a significant impact on the way people think and live. In contrast to this cult of human personality, the Bible is filled with examples of how God delights in using ordinary people in extraordinary ways. These studies recount the lives of biblical characters that were used by God much like a clay pot in the hands of its maker. Some will be familiar and others will be new-found friends. Through them we'll discover the characteristics which mark useful people and see the potential of an "ordinary" person who is taken up and used by God for His eternal purposes — like a jar of clay.
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 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 and super short, Crazy Busy helps put an end to “busyness as usual.”
