The one who moves too hurriedly misses the way. – Proverbs 19:2
The Christian calendar carves out four Sundays for the way to Bethlehem, far too long for those of us who want to get there ASAP. The spiritual changes necessary to be truly ready for what we will find at journey’s end require time. We cannot hurry this journey. We can each think of errors made by trying to go faster. While all around us says “Hurry”, God says “Match your pace to mine.”
Let us pray at this week’s end for the grace to slow down in our soul’s depths.
