Try it This Week: Discipleship Tool


Ruthlessly eliminate hurry! I first heard these words about a month ago in my covenant group, and I haven't been able to get them out of my mind. The words originate from Dallas Willard who shared them with John Ortberg. John was in a busy season of ministry at Willow Creek Community Church when he asked Dallas, his spiritual mentor, for some advice about his spiritual life. Dallas told John that he must "ruthlessly eliminate hurry" as the key to his spiritual health. When John asked Dallas what else he needed to know, Dallas replied, "there is nothing else".

Many of us live our lives on over-load and hyper-drive. We miss the whispers of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit because we are constantly in a hurry. What would happen if, for a day, for a couple of days, for a week, we ruthlessly eliminated hurry and focused more attention on the Lord? Try it this week!

Always praying for you,


"Cease striving and know that I am God." - Psalm 46:10 NASB
