49: The Practice of Slowing Down

On today’s episode we’re wrapping up our series for the month of February, unpacking a few simple, but powerful practices that have brought life to our marriage, and we pray that as you put them into practice in your own life, you’ll experience growth and joy in your relationships as well. Listen in.


The Practice of Slowing Down

How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. James 4:14 


Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12


“We must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from our lives.” Dallas Willard


“We can become so distracted, rushed, and preoccupied that we settle for a mediocre version of life… we just skim our life instead of actually living it.” John Ortberg


Slowing Down

  1. Say yes to the people in front of you.
  2. Say yes to the experiences around you.
  3. Say no to distractions and hurry.
