Part 1: Less Is More
Our culture encourages us to live as close to the edge as possible. As a result we pack our schedules and empty our checkbooks—all in a quest to grab the most we can from life. This kind of life is dangerous, however, because God created us with limits. The closer we approach our limits, the less margin and greater potential we have to burn ourselves out—as well as those around us.
Part 2: Downtime
In an effort to get the most out of life we end up cramming as much stuff as we can into our day. The urgent begins to dominate our schedule, and the important things begin to slip away. In order to gain control of our limited time, we must let God help us prioritize it. This begins by setting aside time with Him.
Part 3: Quality vs. Quantity
When we live without financial margin we rob ourselves and we rob God. As a result we end up overextending ourselves and living with the stress of making ends meet. By making God a priority and creating margin, we give God the opportunity to be involved in our finances.
Part 4: Reordering Your Finances
So how do you create financial margin? Learn four practical tips to achieving financial margin: (1) Identify your annual available income, (2) set margin goals, (3) determine your monthly consumable income, and (4) develop a plan.
Part 5: A Time to Run
There’s something in all of us that wants to walk as close to the line as possible. By setting moral margins, we protect ourselves from experiencing the consequences of sin. Because sexual sin has the greatest consequences, we should always ask ourselves, “Am I fleeing or flirting with the line?”
Part 6: Finding Professional Margin
The key to professional margin is focus. We should learn to work toward what we’re good at—which means improving our strengths and delegating our areas of weakness. When we learn to do less, we accomplish more and have margin.
