This is what my entire life looks like right now. No matter what I’m doing, I’m either studying or thinking about studying. The bar is in one month and now is the time to start crossing responsibilities off of my to-do list and hit the books really hard.
This weekend I had coffee with a girlfriend who asked me to keep going to Community Group (bible study) once a week and not allow studying to become an idol. This sounds reasonable to me in theory, but hard in actuality because I’m also working full time.
I wanted to know your guys’ thoughts. When you have a pressing professional responsibility (deadline at work, finals in school, something going on at home if you’re a SAHM), how do you know when you’re making a task an idol, or giving it the priority it deserves in the season of life you are in?
