  • Use your common sense

    'God blesses everyone who has... common sense.' Proverbs 3:13 CEV

    The key to success lies in doing the right thing at the right time. Theologian Tryon Edwards said, 'Have a time and place for everything, and do everything in its time and place... you'll not only accomplish more, but have far more leisure than those who are always hurrying.'

    If you're tired of living with constant stress, theology professor Dr Howard Hendricks draws our attention to four major sources: (1) Saying yes to far too many things. Dr Lewis Sperry Chafer once said, 'Much of our spiritual activity is little more than a cheap anaesthetic to deaden the pain of an empty life.' All our 'going and doing' fails to address our core emptiness. (2) Not stopping to recharge our batteries. We dutifully pull out our day planner and fill the spaces between activities. But let's not fool ourselves; avoiding overlapping activities isn't planning. As a result, we're a stressed-out, short-tempered crowd, commuting between poorly planned activities that add little to our spiritual well-being. (3) Failure to enjoy what we accomplish. 'A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul' (Proverbs 13:19 NKJV). With always too much to do, we dash off to the next obligation, often without finishing the previous one or taking time to stand back and savour a job well done. No wonder we worry that our existence seems meaningless. (4) Owing more than we can repay. Next time you're faced with a credit card purchase - wait! Don't necessarily say no. Just present your so-called 'need' to God and see what he says about it.

    If you're serious about developing your spiritual life, use your common sense and put these four principles to work.
