Our culture encourages us to live as if we have no limits. So we fill up our schedules and empty our bank accounts. We do as much as we can, spend as much as we can, and acquire as much as we can. When you reach the limit of your resources, strength, capacity or self-control, you have no margin. And without margin, you have no room for error. Love, intimacy, and friendship happen in the unstructured, unhurried world of margin. So together we will explore God's answer to our self-destructive propensity to live as if we have no limits.

Part 1 - Less Is More (Andy Stanley)

Margin is the space between your current performance and your limits. When you reach the limit of your resources, strength, capacity or self-control, you have no margin. And without margin, you have no room for error. The consequences of margin-less living are most apparent in our relationships. Love, intimacy, and friendship happen in the unstructured, unhurried world of margin. When we attempt to squeeze one more thing in, we inadvertently squeeze one more person out. Revelation 3:20

Part 2 - Down Time (Andy Stanley)

In our attempt to get the most out of life, our lives and schedules spin out of control. Our time is limited, and someone always determines how our time is spent. When we surrender our time to the Creator, He will lead us to margin. By creating margin, we recognize that our days are numbered by God, we have to prioritize accordingly, and time alone with God must be a priority. Job 14:5, Psalm 90:12, Ephesians 5:15-17, Matthew 6:33

Part 3 - Quality vs. Quantity (Andy Stanley)

All of us are living on a percentage of our income, but we have allowed our culture to squeeze our financial margin. Without financial margin, we squeeze God out of our finances, and rob ourselves and Him. It affects us emotionally and relationally, and causes unnecessary tension. God cares about those things! If we make God our number one priority, and give Him the first 10%, and not the leftovers, it will break the power of greed in our hearts. Malachi 3:7-12

Part 4 - Reordering Your Finances (Andy Stanley)

In the fourth session of Take It to the Limit, Andy Stanley gives 4 practical tips to achieving financial margin: Identify your annual available income; set margin goals; determine your monthly consumable income; and develop a plan. Luke 16:9-13

Part 5 - A Time to Run (Andy Stanley)

There's something in all of us that wants to walk as close to the line as possible. By setting moral margin, we set standards for ourselves that allow lesser consequences than when living right on the line. Sexual sin has the greatest consequences, and we should always ask ourselves, "Am I fleeing or flirting with the line?" 1 Corinthians 6:18

Part 6 - Finding Professional Margin (Andy Stanley)

The key to professional margin is focus. We should learn to work towards what we're good at, which means improving on our strengths, and delegating our weaknesses. Our weaknesses are someone else's opportunities. When we learn to do less, we accomplish more, and have margin. Exodus 18:13-24
