STOP AND THINK – Leaders understand that activity is not necessarily accomplishment. (John Maxwell, author and motivational speaker)
This is what Maxwell calls the “Law of Priorities.” In a frenetic time like ours, we seem to think that a lot of activity means a lot of progress and achievement. Just be busy working or playing at something, and things will turn out well. Well, we’ve all seen a lot of unproductive activity, haven’t we? It’s important to prioritize to do good so we can achieve the best results.
Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives. (Titus 3:14)
