It seems that with all we’ve accomplished, about all we have really added is speed and noise. We get there faster, but we don’t know where we are going. And when we get there, we’re out of breath.
I read one time about a man who swallowed an egg whole. He was afraid to move because he was afraid it would break. But he was afraid to sit still because he was afraid it would hatch. There are a lot of people like that today–so frenetic, so pressured they don’t know which way to go. And the place where the pressure and restless often hit home is in the home.
