Why does SPIN (the over worked & hurried life) lead to sin? What else can result from living life out of its current season, with priorities in radical need of balance combined with isolation from others and neglect of your own soul care? When life is spinning, I have a tendency to be quick-tempered and on edge. I say things I shouldn't say, with an energy that should be reserved for a baseball coach talking to an umpire about a play that didn't go his way at home plate in the bottom of the ninth. I am irritable and short on patience. I get excessively rigid in my thinking and extend less grace to others when they need it the most. I gossip more, argue more, accuse more and generally feel like a dog chasing its tail. When life starts moving too fast because of an overloaded calendar, I have a tendency to live in an almost perpetual state of stress and general uneasiness. I don't think any of us are easy to live with when we are in a hurry to get things done and don't have any recuperation time built into our lives. Now that I think about it, SPIN not only leads to sin, it is sin!
