Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. (John Ortberg, author and speaker)

“Hurry” might well be the theme of 21st century life. We hurry to and from work and from work to the weekend excursion. We chauffeur our children from sports practice to dance lessons, to and from other activities ad infinitum. For our health, Ortberg wisely suggests that we need to plan time for us and our children to rest.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28).
