Here in the Bay Area, there's always something to do, someplace beautiful to see, someone interesting to meet with. It's probably the same in most urban areas. And that's a problem with urban life. We don't run by the natural cycles of God's creation. Everything is artificial: our light, our food production, our work.
So why slow down?
God wants us to depend on him. We can't do that if we're always going on our own schedule. God wants us available to serve him. We can't do that if every moment is already filled. God knows our limitations. We will burn out if we keep going at such a frantic pace. God knows our tendency to err. We will make mistakes if we never take time to stop and listen to him.
Find some time to slow down and seek Him.
