When we stop to evaluate, we realize that our dilemma goes deeper than shortage of time; it is basically the problem of priorities. It often returns to haunt and rebuke me by raising the critical problem of priorities. We live in constant tension between the urgent and the important. The problem is that the important task rarely must be done today or even this week. Extra hours of prayer and Bible study, visit with that non-Christian friend, careful study of an important book: these projects can wait.
But the urgent tasks call for instant action—endless demands; pressure every hour and day. Is there any escape from this pattern of living? The answer lies in the life of our Lord. On the night before He died, Jesus made an astonishing claim. His three year ministry seemed all too short.
Yet His life was never feverish; He had time for people. He could spend hours talking to one person, such as the Samaritan woman at the well. His life showed a wonderful balance, a sense of timing. Jesus did not ruin His gifts by haste. By this means He warded off the urgent and accomplished the important.
It gave Him a sense of direction, set a steady pace, and enabled Him to do every task God assigned. What does Hummel give as a solution to the Tyranny of the Urgent? The answer lies in the same place freedom from anything lies: Jesus. In John 8. Freedom does not come by trying to produce it. Freedom in the spiritual realm comes by an absolute surrender to Jesus and living dependent upon Him.
