Scripture: Matthew 18:1-5

We’ve talked for two weeks about the rush of the modern world – and how we worship a God who calls us to slow down (and who has shown us how to do it).  But how do we slow down when the world is moving so very fast? Honestly, sometimes “slowing down” or “taking a break” seems like just one more item on an already over-full to-do list.  But, the essential truth is that we can’t “just slow down” by ourselves – it’s not something we can do by sheer force of will.  Instead, we are invited to let ourselves fall into the arms of God’s grace – to become a child again, and allow God to carry us.
