We live in an instant gratification society. When our desires are not met quickly, there must be something wrong. Why can’t I retire early? Why shouldn’t I be able to advance rapidly in the company? I supply plenty of opportunities for my children, why aren’t they ‘getting it’ yet? When it comes to faith, why can’t I grow quickly or be healed now? We become frustrated with waiting and try short cuts to get what we want. The authors of the Bible warn about short cut solutions to important responsibilities like financial management, parenting, career development and personal wholeness. Through this series, we will look at the advice they give us to help us discover the blessing of a life well lived.
