Learning to Say No to Good Things

Randy Alcorn on his blog Eternal Perspectives wrote a wonderful post about using our time wisely. In the post, Planned Neglect, Randy wrote; We shouldn’t say yes to something just because it’s a good thing or even a great thing. One of the things I have thought about recently is how easy it is to start feeling like a horrible person because you can't support all the good causes there are to support.

We only have a limited amount of time, money, and influence. When we allow these things to be spread to thin over a great number of causes then we diminish the good that we can do. It would be better for us to pick a few causes that we can support whole heartedly and give ourselves to them. I encourage you to read Randy's thoughts because I think this is something all of us need to ponder.
