Stop, Look and Listen

Luke 10:38-42

Wayne Muller (The Daily Office, Pete Scazzero) says this:

“We do not stop when we are finished. We do not stop when we complete our phone calls, finish our project, get through this stack of messages, or get out this report that is due tomorrow. We stop because it’s time to stop.

Sabbath (stopping and rest) requires surrender. If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop – because our work is never completely done…if we refuse rest until we are finished, we will never rest until we die…sabbath dissolves the artificial urgency of our days because it liberates is from the need to be finished.

We stop because there are forces larger than we that take care of the universe, and while our efforts are important, necessary and useful, they are not (nor are we) indispensable. The galaxy will somehow manage without us for this hour, this day, and so we are invited AND commanded to relax, and enjoy our relative unimportance, our humble place at the table in a very large world…sabbath says, Be still. Stop. There is no rush to get to the end, because we are never finished”.

Questions:

  • When was the last time you stopped?
  • How did it feel?
  • What did you learn about yourself and your life?
