Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (1 Tim. 6:17-18)

Time management according to Crazy Love principles

Time. We never seem to have enough of it. Our "to do" lists are never ending. We try to cram more and more activities into our day, and we get frustrated when we can't get everything crossed off our checklists.

What if we took a different approach? What if we handed over to God all of our time, asking Him to control what He wanted to accomplish through us in the time He has granted to us? In the book Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan writes about this principle in this way:

Another important element of giving is with our time. Most of us are so busy that the thought of adding one more thing to our weekly schedule is stressful. Instead of adding in another thing to our lives, perhaps God wants us to give Him all of our time and let Him direct it as we see fit (pg. 120).
Give the Lord all of your time, then pray for His wisdom and guidance as you attempt to be a wise manager of the time He has given you.
