“Let me insert a word here to correct some possible misunderstandings. The disciplined use of time should not be understood as promoting a relentless, unresting, burnout-prone lifestyle.

Though Jesus often ministered long hours and frequently under conditions that produced great demands on Him, nevertheless He was a man who rested, relaxed (after all, He walked everywhere He went, and surely at least some of that was leisurely paced), and cultivated relationships.

He never used an hour uselessly, yet we never read of Him acting rushed. And Jesus is our Model in the disciplined use of time.”
