TAKING IT SLOW
Not only did God model rest — specifically sabbath rest — during the Creation process, but he also showed the value of under-commitment, even working under his potential.
“God modeled for us how to choose one or two things to focus on each day,” writes Monica Wilkinson in Slow Lane. “If he wanted to, he could have spoken the entire world into existence in less than a fraction of the blink of an eye.” Instead, God “went about it methodically, slowly, with balance and moderation.” What a contrast to our modern-day multitasking craze!
“God was not looking to maximize every productive waking moment of every single day,” Wilkinson adds. “He chose to focus on one or two things, do them well and with excellence, and then enjoy the accomplishment and reflection of a job well done.”
REFLECTIONS ON GRATITUDE
God is in control, and therefore in everything I can give thanks, not because of the situation but because of the One who directs and rules over it. -KAY ARTHUR -
It is not happiness that makes us grateful. It’s gratefulness that makes us happy. -DAVID STEINDL-RAST -
Gratitude is the least of the virtues, but ingratitude is the worst of vices. -THOMAS FULLER -
A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves. - HENRY WARD BEECHER -
