Flip The Script on Rush

Scripture Reading

“For everything, there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal;
a time to break down and a time to build up;
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance;
a time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek and a time to lose;
a time to keep and a time to throw away;
a time to tear and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NRSVUE)

Introductory Remarks: 

We have flipped the script from hate to love, from merely surviving to thriving, from I can’t to I can and from regret to gratitude in full acceptance of God’s design for our lives. 

Today we flip the script on RUSH remembering that there is a perfect time for everything and NOTHING happens because of time but because of consciousness.  

Major Points of the Lesson:

  1. An attitude of Rush is a signal of fear, anxiety, loss and impatience that contributes NOTHING to the speed at which your desires are fulfilled. If anything, these attitudes hinder your progress.
  2. When conditions are right, a perfect outworking of the spiritual law is demonstrated. The condition of your mind, heart and intentions all matter.


  1. Examine the areas of your life where there is a ‘rush’ to accomplish.
  2. Complete this sentence: If I don’t achieve the goal by this date, then…
  3. What does your answer tell you about your reason for ‘rushing’?
