Friends, I want to tell you something: you cannot heal others and be in a hurry. Yesterday we talked about how we can be people of compassion, but hurry is a compassion-killer. In the story of the Good Samaritan, the priest and the Levite were too consumed with their religious duties to even think about stopping to help a fellow man. They had places to go and people to see. How ironic, then, that someone who was part of a despised race actually took the time to stop and care for him.
You see, in the end, healing may not be about character or about what you believe or about what your principles are. Rather, it’s whether or not you have time. So make time. God did not clutter your life, and He’s not going to declutter it either. It’s up to you. You can choose to make the time to bless and heal others, and that choice can be life-changing.
