Faith in Focus: Job One

Haggai 1:7-9

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says theLord. You looked for much, and behold, it came to little. And when you brought it home,I blew it away. Why? declares the Lord of hosts. Because of my house that lies in ruins, while each of you busies himself with his own house. “

Featured Presentation: How to Master Your Margin

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary describes margin as “an extra amount of something (such as time or space) that can be used if it is needed.”

1. Time Margin

  • After accounting for the time commitments of your day and essential life responsibilities, there is some time left—hopefully. The amount of remaining time is your time margin.

2. Psychological Margin

  • Psychological margin refers to the mental and emotional acuity that one still has after dealing with the personal, vocational, relational obligations, and stressors of the day.


3. Physiological Margin

  • Our physical bodies have limitations. While those limitations vary from person to person, we all have boundaries beyond which we cannot push ourselves.

4. Financial Margin

  • Your expenses minus your liabilities (what you owe others) is your financial margin.
