Rabbits and Turtles

turtle and rabbit

Rabbits go fast, turtles move slowly. They’re both good. I’m convinced we are naturally inclined toward one direction or the other. All of us need to find our soul speed then walk with ease there. The Bible positively presents both rabbit and turtle characters in its pages. Martha scurried about serving and was an obvious rabbit. Her sister Mary was a turtle – all she wanted to do was sit at Jesus’ feet. I believe a lot of fast-paced, driven Believers will give Martha a hug in heaven for providing them with a biblical model.

I was a natural born rabbit but through life circumstances, I have been converted to a turtle. I now move slower and more pronounced than earlier in life.

Walk at your own pace no matter how you are wired – at your unique speed of soul. You can walk there for the long haul through life.
