Most of us live too fast. We barrel down the road to work or to an appointment, preoccupied with what were going to do or say when we get there. The world is a blur at seventy miles an hour, details are blended into a pulp. Even when we get out on our feet, many of us run; not walk. Running gives you more exercise in less time, the experts say. Do more in less time the story of our lives.
Jesus walked. I guess thats why he could preach about birds and flowers. There was time, not only to enjoy the details of his world, but to learn from natural things. He said:
Look at the birds of the air... Your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin but I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these.
Allow the little children to come to me.
I wonder how much about God we dont know just because we drive too fast, or run too much?
