In our society we are always in a hurry. Yet, for the most part, we still appreciate good craftsmanship. For instance a good carpenter teaches his students to be deliberate, slow down, quality is more important than quantity… “measure twice, cut once.”
“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.”
The Lord instructs us to slow down. It is more important to study and understand than to speed read for the sake of finishing a chapter.
Lord take me when I am used up, but use me until I am taken.
