JUST A GUY IN THE PEW PODCAST

Overcommitment

March 22, 2021

Grab a seat in the pew as we discuss what happens to our relationship with God when overcommitment spreads us thin and ruins our best intentions.

Today we’re talking about the pitfalls of overcommitment. Overcommitment begins with the best of intentions: coaching our kids’ teams, being the go-to guy at work, leading volunteer committees at church or racking up hours at the local food bank. Soon enough our busy schedules sink us to a level of distraction that steals our joy and depletes us of peaceful time with God, family, and friends.

On this podcast we’ll learn that:

  • Overcommitment leads to feelings of anxiety and resentfulness
  • Our devotion for Jesus is not proven by a long list of volunteer and church duties
  • It’s important to take an inventory of where we can best use our gifts, instead of spreading ourselves too thin
