The Daily Memo | June 14, 2023 | What’s Your Hurry?

I remember my dad asking that question many times. What’s your hurry?

Maybe it’s generational and he did live through the Great Depression, if that’s relevant. He took his time on most any project he ever did to be sure it was done correctly. He worked with numbers in his management career for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Perhaps that’s why he wasn’t in a hurry. Everything had to add up before moving to the next thing.

That certainly is not the case in today’s society. I grew up in the microwave generation and watched it evolve into calculators, computers, and handheld devices that once would have taken an entire room to contain. News, events and messages are instantaneously delivered to our fingertips. We call it a phone, but I rarely see anyone talking into it.

What’s my point?

Slowing down and enjoying life through the 5 senses, Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste, and Touch, would be a welcome addition to anyone’s day. I try and do that every morning to remind me that God is in control, and I need His assistance in every aspect of life. Hurrying is not an attribute of the Holy Spirit. in my experience.

Jesus lived life at a moderate pace. How long do you think it took to walk everywhere He went? There was no Acela in Israel.

Slow down friend. What’s your hurry?

And that’s the memo.
