As a society, we are accustomed to a fast pace of life. We are masters at multitasking, a mother may be doing laundry while running the dishwasher while cooking a meal in the crockpot so she can do some other task. We have become comfortable with instant everything from fast internet to instant mashed potatoes.
This health crisis has brought many people's fast lifestyle to a slow crawl. Perhaps this is God's way of telling us to slow down and spend time with important things in life, like the precious moments with our children, or more importantly spend time with God. It is a great time for Scripture reading and meditating on the words of God or spending time in prayer. David reminds us to "Be still" (Psalm 46:10). Are we being put in a slower life situation so we can be still for our benefit??
