Opt for the Easy and Discover the Shallow

DRF—Fast food has changed the way that we view time and convenience. I can pull into the drive-thru, order, pay and get my food in just a few minutes. We often want this with the rest of life.

Encounter a problem and easy solutions can seem the best. We can be over-and-done with that crisis in just a few minutes. Fast solutions to big problems leave us as shallow people. Having platitudes as solutions keep us from wrestling with the ultimate questions of life. 

Our souls need more than junk food. When faced with the death of a loved one, we need to wrestle with end of life issues. We need to slowly walk through the steps of grief and recovery.

When the big issues in life hit the fan, we need to take time to work through them. Pain causes us to grow in ways that pleasure can’t.
