3 Reasons God Wants You To Slow Down

1. It can distract you from your purpose

This is perhaps the most important reason to say no to being ‘busy doing good’.

Growing up, I was taught the importance of helping out. This is a good thing, but at times it can hurt my growth and progress because I take on much more than I am able, which distracts me from the things that actually matter.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t do good or help out. Absolutely not! My point.. just don’t get so busy that you don’t have time for God.

It’s time for us to move from a place of doing what’s expected of us to doing the right thing as Christians. This requires that we deepen our relationship with God.

This will not only help us hear his voice, understand what he requires of us but also grow in wisdom to act according to His will for our lives.
