How Fast is Too Fast?
July 20, 2016
Absolutely insane. Last week a gentleman I know took me for a drive in his Ferrari, and it was absolutely insane. I have never been in a car that would go from zero to crazy so quick. I wasn’t sure if I was thrilled or terrified.
Officially the car will go from zero to a 100 km/h in under 3 seconds, but unofficially it seemed a lot quicker than that. We were driving on a back road and while I have driven faster I’m not sure that I have ever got to faster that quick.
I won’t lie, the drive was a hoot and afterwards, when my pulse slowed down I realized how much like life the experience had been.
While being able to drive at speeds that are impractical and illegal may have a certain appeal, it is still illegal and impractical.
Sometimes it seems that we are pursuing life and all of its pursuits at much higher speeds than is practical or safe. And while the experience might be exhilarating at the time we have to ask ourselves, is it wise? The Bible reminds us that Jesus often slowed down to step into the presence of the Father, and no doubt there is a lesson there for all of us. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
