Kevin DeYoung says, “Busyness does not mean you are a faithful or fruitful Christian. It only means you are busy, just like everyone else.” Ouch, Kevin. In his book, “Crazy Busy,” he does a crazy good job of convicting everyone on their busyness. He doesn’t waste anytime getting to the root of our busyness either…spoiler alert: we’re the reason our lives are crazy busy.
There are ten short chapters in this book and six of them are diagnosis such as, “#3: You Can’t Serve Others without Setting Priorities,” and, “#5: You Are Letting the Screen Strangle Your Soul,” anyone and everyone who says, “I’m too busy….” will find at least one chapter they can take to heart. Of course he finishes the book with the chapter on what you need to do to get out of the busy trap.
If you purchase the book be sure to download the study guide as well.
