crazy busy

 

During my week of less input, I read this book. I’m a big fan of Kevin DeYoung. I love the way he writes- though he is incredibly smart and theologically deep, his writing is approachable, direct and funny. He’s in the trenches of raising children and growing in the Lord. In Crazy Busy, he helps us see the underlying sin issues of why we are so busy, like pride, input addiction, and the need for Sabbath rest. He also examines ways we can stop freaking out about our children, and how we don’t have to feel guilty because we aren’t seizing every available opportunity for Christian service and missions.

“We are here and there and everywhere. We are distracted. We are preoccupied. We can’t focus on the task in front of us. We don’t follow through. We don’t keep our committments. We are so busy with a million pursuits that we don’t even notice the most important things slipping away.”

I loved this book and highly recommend it. As the subtitle promises, it’s mercifully short- a quick weekend read. Any author who says his “life feels like something between a perpetual summer camp and a three-ring circus” has got my attention (and respect)!
