How Great Men Allocate Their Time

Religious 5 Comments

One of my favorite articles for Mises.org was, “Superman Needs an Agent.” I reached the surprising conclusion–even to myself–that Superman should focus on public exhibitions of his powers (rather than amazing one-off things), if his goal is to help humanity in a nuts-and-bolts manner.

In a perhaps related vein, recently I was musing on how Jesus spends some of His time in the gospel accounts going around and engaging in mass healing. Like, a town would bring up their sick and He would heal everybody.

But that’s not all that Jesus did. And so it occurred to me to ask, “Why not?”

And the answer, of course, is that Jesus had such important things to teach people, that at a certain point “on the margin” it was much more valuable for Him to take an hour to deliver the Sermon on the Mount, rather than go track down another group of people with diseases.

Finally, I want to mention that Jesus frequently took time to step away from everybody and pray. One might think that as busy and as connected to His Father as Jesus was, He could “skip leg day” but oh no.
