One of the scientists who figured prominently in our national space program had four trays on his desk. Executives usually have two trays, one marked “In” and one marked “Out.” On this administrator’s desk, however, were four, labeled “Frantic,” “Urgent,” “Pressing,” and “Overdue.”Most of us are living hurried lives. The thing that breaks down our stamina is not so much external stress, but internal pressures and spiritual emptiness. When we possess the inner peace that comes through Christ, our physical health can improve, our general outlook is more positive, and our relationships with others can be deeper and more fulfilling.
