Dale Hudson has a great post on some warning signs that you’re too busy.

In fact he has 13 of them! Here’s a handful:

  • You often have to use your day off to get everything done.
  • You can’t find a free week to take vacation or the only way you can take vacation is by missing something.
  • Instead of having a few programs that are well-staffed by volunteers, you have lots of programs that are understaffed by volunteers.
  • You don’t have time to stop and evaluate what you’re doing.

For some reason we think programs at the church are the most important piece of growing in Christlikeness, when in fact, practicing Christlikeness amidst regular life is often a greater measure of spiritual maturity and Gospel practice.
