Ghandi on Speed

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Ghandi

So much of what our culture values most is increasing its speed – or quantity. So much so that we are willing to justify just about anything in order to get it.

Whether it is living longer, seeing more things, staying up later, moving on up, knowing more stuff, having more things, traveling more places, friending more faces, filling up spaces, healing more ailments, adrenaline injections, feels good infections or sex without consequences – we pursue all of this very often at the expense of our sole goal and end in life: Holiness.

And then we do all of those things and we ignorantly call it “livin’ life to its fullest”. But if what you are doing is not contributing to your holiness. If your work is not sanctifying. Then you are not living life to the fullest – you’re wasting it.

hmmm…this one’s always easy to look over. One can get frenzied and lose sight of the true goal even in the search for God, and the service of His people. It’s important never to forget the feeling, not just the reason why we do things…our calling..

I’m disappointed. I assumed you had video of Ghandi using illicit drugs.
