Busy People Always Have Time

Posted: June 2, 2011 in leadership, misc, quotes

A leader will seldom say, “I don’t have time.”  Such an excuse is usually the refuge of a small-minded and inefficient person.  Each of us has the time to do the whole will of God for our lives.  J.H. Jowett said:

“I think one of the cant [hypocritical and sanctimonious] phrases of our day is the familiar one by which we express our permanent want of time.  We repeat it so often that by the very repetition we have deceived ourselves into believing it.  It is never the supremely busy men who have no time.  So compact and systematic is the regulation of their day that whenever you make a demand on them, they seem to find additional corners to offer for unselfish service.  I confess as a minister, that the men to whom I most hopefully look for additional service are the busiest men.”

– J. Oswald Sanders, Spiritual Leadership, p. 94
