We start a new series today based on the book, “Unloading the Overload: Stress management for Christians” by Chris Powell and Graham Barker.

Today we explore the issue of prioritising.

How did Jesus decide what to do with his time and energy? What is the place for prayer in this challenge?

Jesus had clarity about his long-range goals, day-to-day priorities and yet had the heart to be flexible.

Scriptures referred to: Matt 4; John 11.50; Mark 10.45; Mark 5.21-34; John 11.6; Mark 6.45; Mark 5.24; Mark 9.30-31; John 5.30; Mark 6.31-46; 2 Timothy 1.7.
