In this story today from CNN, we see video of a woman who is trapped in a vehicle that is malfunctioning so that it keeps accelerating and cannot stop. It’s hard to imagine the panic this woman must have felt. It kind of reminded us of our culture that seems to have its foot stuck on the accelerator, always speeding faster and faster. What a relief it is to both pull up from the out-of-control acceleration and hit the brake. Jesus told us: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) What would it mean for you to take this invitation seriously today?
