Topic: THE devil has a hand in what is done in haste. Turkish proverb
Busy people often feel they must hurry to get everything done they need to do, but I believe that if we must constantly hurry
to get it all done, we are doing too much.
Most people today say they have too much to do and lament the stress they are
under, but they forget they made their schedule, and they are the only ones who can change it. Do we really have to do all
the things that we do, or could we easily eliminate a few of them and be able to slow down and live life at a pace that
could be enjoyed? I think we all know the answer to that question. Of course we can do less if we truly want to.
When we see the span of a person’s life in print or on a tombstone, it starts with the year of their birth and ends with
the year of their death. The only thing in between those two dates is a dash.
Perhaps the dash is there because that is what our life seems like. We dash through everything, and before we know it, life is coming to an end and we may not have enjoyed it at all.
Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.
Much of what we hurry to do is done because we think if we do it at that moment, we will enjoy life at some time in the future. I suggest we slow down and begin to enjoy life now!
