God Loves Snail Mail

June 29, 2012

When I started in missions, the way you communicated was through a pay phone or a letter.

I know, some of you do not even know what that is!

I remember a long time ago, writing a letter, rolling it up, and sending my trusty carrier pigeon off on his journey. (Ok, slight exaggeration)

Yes God is ultimately the author of technology and innovation, but I think He still has a soft spot for things which take longer.

In the Bible, we know Him as a supernatural God. He parted the Red Sea, spoke through a donkey, and performed countless other miracles.

Yet, he is still the God of “snail mail”. In other words, He loves things that involve a process and take time.

We curse the microwave and the drive-through for being too slow. God, however, enjoys the slow cooker.
