Too fast

I’m a speed fiend – I like fast: fast snowboarding, fast travel, fast driving, fast food (sometimes), fast swimming & speedy progress. Being fast yields itself well to the world in which we live. We like microwaves, no lines, phone apps that help us avoid traffic & almost anything that makes us quicker, more efficient & speedy.
The problem with speed is that everything can become increasingly blurry, the faster our lives move. Speed enables us to overlook things, of which some are important beyond description. There is definitely such a thing as too slow, but let’s be careful that our lives get so fast that we neglect to live & love.

Go FAST!!!!

I’m a go fast person – snowboard fast, travel fast, a few speeding tickets, etc. I like to go fast, but I’m also learning that from time to time, I can get burned by my need for speed.
Here are some examples:
*character is the result of small choices made over minutes, hours, days, weeks & years
*relationships don’t foster depth & richness at the same speed as microwave popcorn
*trust requires time & consistency
*our relationship with God can become increasingly fruitful the longer we stay committed to God

Fast is good, but sometimes slow is better ,)
