As a Christian, when I read something that I consider to be secular that has a spirtual point in it, I always seem to have to stop and try to see if it is Biblical or not.
I am a big fan of David Allen especially on his thoughts and processes related to "task managment." Since May04 I have been pretty dedicated to applying his methods, and I have seen some significant and in many ways vast improvement in my level of performance and completness.
Mr. Allen has a new book out called "Ready for Anything" that gives you two-three page refreshers on his ideas (52 of them) from his first book "Getting Things Done." This morning was "Clearing Your Head For Creativity" and this is was my interesting paragraph:
"One of the greatest challenges we must face at some point in our lives is that our sense of self-worth cannot hang solely on our inventory of what we've created. If all we'd done were to disappear - at this moment - we have to know that we will continue to have value and that we can create from scratch what we need or want. We have to know that no matter how finished we think we are, God isn't done with us until she is."
As I started reading this message, I was thinking 'Wow ... this could get into a simple Evangelistic message.' And then there is a mention of God (Supreme beeing) and then "SHE" is in control ... WHAT?!? SHE ... it must be a typo I am reasoning. Because otherwise this would be very un-BIBLICAL.
