As time passes, it seems to go by faster and faster. It may be that technology allows us to access information almost instantaneously, that we are getting older, or a combination of those or other factors. While time is flying by, there are moments when we may get easily frustrated. It is during these times that we especially need to slow down!
When we follow God, we should act out of the love that God has shown us. When we are showing His love, we need to be patient. This means that in those moments when we are frustrated or angered, we need to slow down before we speak. We need to first take the time to listen, understand, and call on God's wisdom before we speak. We can then slow down and act on God's love as we treat each other with respect, patience and love!
Slow down and don't be quick to act so you can call on God and embrace His love before you speak!
Thank You for Your patience in my life. Help me to slow down and call on You before I speak and act. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
