Going nowhere faster

One of the great ironies of modern life is that it is so filled with devices to save time and increase efficiency, yet people have never been so hurried and restless. If all these technological wonders are supposed to save us time, why do we have so little time for the things that matter? It seems that all we’ve succeeded in doing is adding to the complexity of life. We get there faster, but we don’t know where we are going. The psychiatrist Rollo May once said ‘it is an old and ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.’ Our stressed and anxious lives are the price we pay for it.
We need to remember again the timeless words of Jesus who said ‘Come unto me and I will give you rest…Put God first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well.’
