Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung

I had never read any of Kevin DeYoung's books but when I had the chance to read a short book about being busy, I thought it was a good time to try one.

The author lets you know that he kept this book short because we are all busy.  In today's world it is easy to get wrapped up in both work and our personal lives.  The main question is what are we busy doing?

I did not read anything groundbreaking but he does an excellent job of reminding us to make God number one in our lives.  One of Satan's best traps today is to make us feel we have to do everything.  It is easy to be pulled into being a "Martha".  We want to be everything to everyone.  DeYoung reminds us that God is the only one who can be everything.

I highly recommend this book to everyone even if you don't think you have a problem with business.  DeYoung explains what the Bible says about it and what we need to do as Christians.  I know I will be re-reading this on a regular basis.
