Broken and Forced

Things break or wear down. Its natural. 

Someone broke the church office copier recently.  Don't know who. Doesn't really matter. But it was broken because a part was forced. Plastic snaps and breaks easily. Now we wait for the part and the repair.

We all have experienced the "forcing" of things.  Almost always this forcing breaks things or relationships or possibilities. Forcing is not natural and has consequences.

Perhaps a common task for God's people is to learn to wait, to breathe, to pause and not to force.
