Important Over Urgent

Important Over Urgent

Think back to Craig's message. What sticks out?

Key Scriptures

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to [Jesus] and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
Luke 10:38-40 NIV

Choosing the Important

  1. Create artificial deadlines
  2. Be ruthlessly selective in your “yeses.”
  3. Do first what matters most.
