This week I had an interesting discussion with our youth and children’s work students, was it better to rust out or burn out? There were some who thought there was virtue in living your life in such a way that you would never rust out. This would
be the greatest waste of a God given life and service, to live life so slowly that you did not accomplish all you could for God.
Is the opposite so virtuous? To live life so fast, to do so much so, so quickly, is that living life the Godly way? I confess I enjoy living like this sometimes, to rush around juggling lots of different projects, but I can’t sustain it for that long.
My prayer is that I do neither, this would seem to be the responsible kingdom response. Perhaps Andretti is still right, that whatever speed we go at, whatever capacity or incapacity or baggage we carry, life should never be completely under
our own individual control but under God’s.
