Be Still

‘Slow down,’ ‘Catch your breath.’ These are phrases constantly being thrown at me. But I feel there is so much to do at present, but maybe I should take notice of these kind admonitions. I find the young people of today are always rushing around; they speak at speed, run here and there and seldom have time for a proper conversation. Then maybe it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black or ‘mote and plank.’ How can I criticize when I’m obviously a bad.

So long as our heart is healthy there is probably no harm in rushing around and it does get more done. But, I ask, does our rushing around mean there is less time for God and for thinking time.
