Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 21

Hurry Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind. Proverbs 21:5 (TM)

My life seems precariously balanced between careful planning and hurry-scurry. Sometimes I carefully plan only to have unforseen troubles send me hurrying and surrying about – like when my laptop and desktop both decided to die late last week. When hurry and scurry put me "further behind" it feels even harder to pull myself out of the fray long enough to get a grip and get back to planning ahead.

The to-do list seems so long. I feel the tyranny of the urgent.

[sigh] Monday morning.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Proverbs 21”

  1. I can totally relate, Tom. Will life ever slow down?
    13 If you stop your ears to the cries of the poor,
    your cries will go unheard, unanswered.
    During the Thanksgiving season, while we are so blessed, this really speaks to me. Am I listening to the needs around me? There are plenty of people in our midst that could use a couple of bucks or love of some other kind. If I want God to hear my supplications I need to be in tune to the cries around me.
