Simplifying Time 11 7-10

  1. 1. Psalm 90:12 So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.
  2. 2. • Before Google Instant, the typical searcher took more than 9 seconds to enter a search term, and we saw many examples of searches that took 30-90 seconds to type. • Using Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search. • If everyone uses Google Instant globally, we estimate this will save more than 3.5 billion seconds a day. That’s 11 hours saved every second.
  3. 3. What Time-Saving Invention Would You Most Like to See? • “A clothes-folding machine.” • “A DVR that you can program with your voice.” • “A drain in the middle of my house so I could just hose this place down!” • “A vacuum that will pick up large items.” • “A Facebook alarm that goes off if you’ve been on the site for way too long.”
  4. 4. What Is the Weirdest Thing You’ve Eaten for Dinner in the Name of Saving Time? • “A whole bag of beef jerky.” • “Salami wrapped in a tortilla.” • “A beer and a pudding cup.” • “A honey bun and a piece of sausage.” • “One bag of microwave popcorn and two peanut butter cups.”
  5. 5. What Is the Most Embarrassing Thing You’ve Done for the Sake of Speed? • “Taken a ‘shower’ with wet wipes.” • “Sent the kids to school in their pajamas (under a coat of course).” • “Duct-taped the hem of my work pants.” • “Ironed only the parts of my clothing that could be seen.”
  6. 6. What Is the Most Embarrassing Thing You’ve Done for the Sake of Speed? • “Painted only the toenails that would show through my peep-toe shoes.” • “Carried the kids to the car with a blanket over their (three) heads so I didn’t have to put coats and mittens on all of them.” • “Exercised the dogs in the backyard with a laser pointer instead of walking them.”
  7. 7. What Is the Most Embarrassing Thing You’ve Done for the Sake of Speed? • “Skipped changing the sheets when my daughter ‘lightly’ wet the bed.” • “Stapled my daughter’s Girl Scouts patches to her vest because I didn’t have time to sew them before the meeting.” • “I knowingly dropped my son off at day care without shoes and acted shocked by his shoelessness at pickup.”
  8. 8. Exodus 20:8-11 8 Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. 9For six days you shall labor and do all your work. 10But the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God; you shall not do any work— you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns.
  9. 9. 11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.
  10. 10. Mark 2 23 One sabbath he was going through the cornfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. 24The Pharisees said to him, ‘Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?’… 27Then he said to them, ‘The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the Sabbath.”
  11. 11. “To the biblical mind…the Sabbath as a day of rest, as a day of abstaining from toil, is not for the purpose of recovering one’s lost strength and becoming fit for the forthcoming labor. The Sabbath is a day for the sake of life… The Sabbath is not for the sake of the weekdays; the weekdays are for the sake of the Sabbath.” Abraham Heschel, Sabbath
  12. 12. Romans 14:5 Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds.

  14. 14. Mark 1 35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. 36And Simon and his companions hunted for him. 37When they found him, they said to him, ‘Everyone is searching for you.’
  15. 15. Mark 6 30 The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. 31He said to them, ‘Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.”
