An Unhurried Cup of Coffee By Dr. Bob Snyder
Will you have an unhurried cup today?
I asked a man from Germany what he missed most while living in the United States. He replied, “I miss sitting unhurried at a café and drinking coffee with friends. Now I get my coffee at a convenience store rushing to my next appointment.” He knew that relationships flourish best in the soil of quiet, unhurried dialogue.
My days, more often than not, mirror this hurried picture of life. I realize that living in a café is unrealistic. However, if no “café experiences” exist in my life then important relationships could be in danger.
I have to ask myself if I do the same with God. Do I have my “spiritual to-go” cup in my hand? Jesus valued “café experiences.”
Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them, “Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” (Mark 6:31 NIV)
Join me this week in enjoying an unhurried mug of spiritual coffee.
