A few weeks ago, these little books were passed out in church, one per household. I read ours and then my husband took it with him on his trip. Now I have the book back to look over again. It's a good read. Here's a passage:
We live in a constant tension between the urgent and the important. The problem is that many important tasks need not be done today, or even this week. Extra hours of prayer and Bible study, a visit to an elderly friend, reading an important book; these activities can usually wait a while longer. But often urgent, though less important, tasks call for an immediate response--endless demands pressure every waking hour.
So what do you think I got out of that paragraph? Not what you think. It was the "reading an important book" phrase that stood out to me. You mean, I'm not wasting time reading all evening? I feel very lazy when I'm doing that.
The book reminded me of Today Matters a little.
By the way, I went here and downloaded Pilgrim's Progress for free on my off-brand I-pod. I mentioned it to my husband, and he said they were supposed to read it in the school. In public school? He said he was supposed to read it when he was in the gifted program...very interesting to me. Anyways, it's a pretty long book and reminds me of Hind's Feet in High Places. Think I'm halfway through.
