太忙了,无法查看Facebook

我曾经听过一位女性时间管理专家说,一些上班族强迫自己下载兴发pt首页登录查看电子邮件的原因是他们不知道下一步该怎么做。Without a clear understanding of the purpose of their job,完成它需要什么,或者,就这点而言,很想完成它,宣布新邮件的噪音成了一种受欢迎的干扰。

The same can be true for me as a mom.如果不清楚我要做什么以及为什么这很重要,我漫无目的地走进母亲的工作日,结果浪费了很多时间。下载兴发pt首页登录So much to do.我从世界的哪开始?我不知道。I guess I'll check Facebook again.

现在,这并不意味着,如果我们每天早上醒来时没有明确的目标感和优先的任务清单,我们就不是好妈妈。有时我们只需要把一只脚放在另一只脚前面,even if we've lost sight of the end of the road.我们必须选择说no"to distractions even when we can't remember why it is important to do so.

But we must also labor to maintain a clear biblical vision of motherhood: to remember who it is who called us in the first place (God!),他叫我们做什么(抚养这些孩子,created in His image,为了他的荣耀!),and how he has called us to do this (diligently,快乐地,依靠他的优雅)。

我们越是看到上帝慈悲为母,the more we understand the honor and eternal significance of our calling,我们越是明白我们的庄严责任,使我们的孩子在主的道路上成长,and the more we are joyfully compelled to glorify the Savior by giving our lives away for our little ones,the less likely we'll be distracted by the cheap thrills of the Internet.

We'll be so caught up in the difficult yet delightful duties of motherhood that the Siren song of our Facebook feed will simply fade away.

作为艺术家的母亲

"正如一个绘画和肖像的艺术家在他的作品中表现出极大的关注,所以你们每个人,mothers and fathers,must be attentive to these wonderful images [children].每一天,画家在画上加上必要的东西。Sculptors do the same,removing excess stone and adding what is lacking.你也应该这样做:作为图像制作者,devote all your 下载兴发pt首页登录time to the task of fashioning wonderful images for God.去除多余部分;加上不足之处。每一天,examine the images closely.培养每一个人的天赋,removing what is by nature inferior….[T]each them to be sober,vigilant,在祈祷中保持警惕,and to place everything that is said and done under the sign of the cross."~John Chrysostom (c.347—407),论虚荣与儿童教育,22:

First Things First

2012年10:32下午10:32由Carolyn Mahaney提供 归档下圣经中的女性身份γ下载兴发pt首页登录时间管理

If less important activities are infringing upon more important priorities,we need to make a change.但这是什么样子的??

这是否意味着妈妈们除了温热奶瓶、阅读睡前故事、帮助做家庭作业和开车去看足球赛外,就不能过日子?下载兴发pt首页登录?

Of course not!But given the significant amount of 下载兴发pt首页登录time it takes to effectively teach,火车,纪律,care for,鼓励孩子们,你没有时间去做其他的事了。下载兴发pt首页登录做母亲应该花费你大部分的时间和精力下载兴发pt首页登录

那么,我们如何消除网络上的干扰,使我们无法专注于我们的孩子呢??

让我回到前一个插图.You may remember how I realized that browsing online while my coffee was brewing each morning ended up cutting into my 下载兴发pt首页登录time with God's Word.所以,我为自己设定了一个界限:在我安静下来之前,不要发邮件或写博客。下载兴发pt首页登录This wasn't legalistic.It was simply a personal resolution to protect the most important from the less important,to keep first things first.

We can apply this same principle to the priorities of mothering and caring for our homes.在你的生活中,你需要建立什么样的结构来优先训练你的孩子?也许你需要在孩子们睡觉之前不要看电子邮件,或者提前半小时起床更新你的博客,or only browse Pinterest or Facebook after the dinner dishes are done.Maybe more drastic action is necessary.您可能需要暂时停止某些在线活动。下载兴发pt首页登录

尽一切努力,让我鼓励你消除一切干扰。在天堂的每个季节都有下载兴发pt首页登录时间,现在是时候用主的下载兴发pt首页登录方式训练你的孩子了now.

优先权问题

2012 at 11:20 pm   |   by Carolyn Mahaney 归档下圣经中的女性身份γ下载兴发pt首页登录时间管理

So how do we know if we're distracted or focused on the right things?We need to determine biblical priorities for our season,and then consistently evaluate whether or not we are living according to those priorities.对于有孩子的妈妈们,很简单。三个不可协商的问题排在首位:

1。The gospel (1 Cor.15:3)
2。你丈夫(Tit.2:3-5,Eph.5:23-33)
三。你的孩子(德国6:4-9 Tit.2:3-5)

Ask yourself:我是否将这些圣经优先事项作为我的首要优先事项??

然后想想你每天上网或打手机的习惯,问问自己:

我花在网上的时间下载兴发pt首页登录是否会缩短我的时间来持续地实践精神学科??

Does Facebook hinder me from putting my husband's needs first??

推特或发短信是否分散了我对教学的注意力?training,纪律,关心和鼓励我的孩子??

Do my Internet habits cause me to be rushed,匆忙,在照顾我的家人和训练我的孩子时分心或焦虑??

If we're consistent at checking our Facebook wall but not in prayer,或者如果我们关注的是我们的Etsy网站或博客,而不是我们的孩子,然后我们需要改变一下。
