Every. Day. Matters. This is a truth that Scripture reminds us of on every page. Not taking our time for granted and how we choose to use it is so crucial, yet can so easily be subverted by the temptation of distractions and whatever else life throws at us. How can we be most efficient and productive in all of life in a way that brings glory to God? If you keep asking this question, this book is for you! Brandon Crowe gives us a solid, biblical approach to productivity that is both theological and practical.
To determine the wisest course of action in a given situation means you must know what Scripture says about your callings and your limitations. It also means you must wrestle with priorities and figure out a way to make room for accomplishing your most important tasks.Page 8
Many books on productivity lean in the direction of “self-help” and give little to no biblical guidance. But Every Day Matters begins with a proper perspective on productivity, using Part One to look at what God’s Word has to say on this issue, in both the OT and NT. Part Two takes up the majority of the book by talking through various principles such as defining priorities, goals and planning, routines, and even the importance and priority of family. The final section, Part Three, gets practical with spiritual disciplines and the importance of getting organized in your daily life.
Productivity must be related to the first great command to love God with all that we are, which includes being faithful with what he has entrusted to us.Page 6
This book is unique in that it is very practical, with many details for planning and organizing your every day matters, while at the same time highlighting the need to seek to please God in all of life. God desires that we work well and redeem the time, but also take times of rest and Sabbath when we can recharge and be reminded that life is not all about work. This book will help you think clearly about what IS most important, and to reevaluate how you spend your time. It speaks into social media and entertainment, things that we all wrestle with, and how to use them wisely.
I’d recommend Every Day Matters to anyone! Life can be challenging, especially if we do not set goals, organize our activities and priorities, and have an overarching purpose that directs how we choose to spend our time. This book speaks into all of these issues in a way that brings the most pleasure and glory to God.
