Yet a very little food eaten in peace is better than twice as much earned from overwork and chasing the wind. Ecc 4.6

We don’t spend enough time in this great book. Wisdom for all, who are prepared to read and listen.  Today, the encouragement is to relax and take time to be still. Don’t always be in hurry; there is time for everything, kick out the clutch and cruise for a while. Enjoy God’s peace and perhaps that meal with friends.

Lord, we are told to keep busy, to work and work. We are told that there is no time to stop and that everything is urgent and vital. What a lie! Help us to focus on what is important, not what shouts the loudest. That way we can relax.
