Nov 25, Shaun Marksbury rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a re-read of a good little booklet I received with my first college humnel. It’s extremely helpful in showing that 1 the urgent isn’t always what is important to the Lord, and 2 the devotional life is far more pressing on the soul than anything else. If I could give one criticism, Hummel doesn’t quite define what he means tyrabny “wait for instructions” and “wait on the Lord” it is a short bookand this may allow charrles more mystical approaches to answering life’s problems.
Still, the book t This is a re-read of a good little booklet I received with my first college class. Still, the book theologically addresses an important and practical issue, and it’s been a blessing as a result. Enlightening A quick read that’s easy to understand. The principle of the tyranny of the urgent is enlightening. A new perspective to consider when we feel like we don’t have enough time to do what needs to be done.

Dec 06, Robert Logan rated it it was amazing. No one was in more demand than Jesus. Someone who can heal will be constantly followed, mobbed, and bombarded tyranjy requests. From a human perspective, there was more left undone than accomplished. And yet Jesus was finished. Tyranny of the Urgent, the classic booklet by Charles Hummel, begins with the premise that we have overloaded ourselves with too much to do.
Our lives resemble over-packed suitcases bursting at the irgent. If you contrast that way of living with how Jesus lived, the difference is stark. The secret irgent found in Mark 1: Jesus got up early in nummel morning and tyrnny and met with the Father. The sense of priorities and calling and direction he received for that day, flowing out of his time with the Father, allowed him to move with calmness and purpose as he proceeded into whatever interruptions would come his way.
Some of those interruptions were divine appointments, like the bleeding woman who touched him on his robe when he was on his way somewhere else. He was able to discern that this was something he needed to attend to.
Other times the distractions needed to be ignored. When you set out with a clear idea of your priorities— not everything that you could do, but what God has actually called you to do— you can then evaluate things that come up in light of those priorities.
That grid will help you tell the difference between divine appointments and distractions.

Nov 22, Jonathan Brooker rated it really liked it. I’ve heard of this incredibly tiny book for a while and yet hadn’t gotten around to reading it. I’m so glad that now I charle While I would have loved to see it be about twice as long with some of the more practical how-to’s given a chance to come out, I suppose I’d rather have a shorter book that is good the whole way through rather than one that’s longer but isn’t.
Fortunately, because of the short length, this will be one that I go back to periodically to let it challenge my time and energy ma I’ve heard of this incredibly tiny book for a while and yet hadn’t gotten around to reading it.

Sep 07, Oluwaranti Liad-Tella rated it it was amazing. Its simple but still deep. Sep 28, Kyle rated it really liked it. This is a short, but quite helpful, book on our tendency to place the urgent over the important.
By the end of the day, week, month, and year, we find that the urgent things have dominated our time while the important things have been neglected. Lately I have felt that this has been the case in my schedule and have vowed to make choices based on importance rather than urgency. The brief recommendations in this book look like they will prove to be helpful in that endeavor.
Aug 08, Carolyn Shepherd rated it it was amazing. I read this little hum,el when I was in college. I never forget it’s short little message. We get so preoccupied by what we consider urgent, that we let those thing’s which are truly important, even eternal pass us by and we don’t even notice until it’s too late.
I determined that to the best of my ability, I was not going thr live my life that way. Since then, I have given away more copies of this little booklet than I can count.

It is truly important. Dec 13, Ken Horne rated it liked it.
A concise reminder of how we so often allow our latest whim, or the most frequently repeated and loudest demand from the many “squeaky wheels” in our lives to distract us from those things that have real value and importance.
