People, Slow Down

June 14, 2013

We live at breakneck speed these days. From one appointment to the other, from one kid’s game to the next we race without rest. No time for dinner at the table or a family conversation. Some don’t even have enough time to gather the family together to worship on Sunday. With the population shifting from the rural areas to the urban centers, it will only continue to worsen. Individuals who are used to the laid back ways of the country will experience the high-speed life of the city. It’s recorded in Scripture that we are to rest on the seventh day. He has allowed for six days of work and busyness, but on that seventh day we are to rest.

So, where are you burning the candle at both ends? Where can you slow down? Maybe go out to a local ice cream shop or snow cone stand with the family. Or you could take the kids to a local miniature golf course and play till they close. How about a drive-in theater for a family movie night? Before you go do any of these things, have everyone turn their cell phones off and deposit them in the trunk of the car, or even better, leave them on the counter for when you return. Find a place to slow down, reclaim your family time.

Chris LeDoux penned this song long before life had taken on this rat race speed. When you listen to it, you will realize he was a prophetic voice with this song, “Slow Down.”
