"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."
Recognize the Posted Speed Limit. We must recognize the speed to which we have been called. And yes, there are times in our lives when the speed seems incredibly fast and we cannot slow down; the truth is, some seasons in life are like that. However, there are other times in our lives when we must eliminate those activities that were not put upon us by God, but rather our own doing for myriad reasons.

Current Rate of Speed. What is your current rate of speed and what are you doing at that speed? Have you set apart time for fellowship, doctrine, the "breaking of bread" and prayer? If this is a season in life where you have no choice and cannot slow down, trust the Lord, by His grace, to bring you through to the other side. But, if you find yourself with some flexibility, are you choosing the "good part which shall not be taken away" from you?
Read: Luke 10:38-42
Our speed has a direct impact on our refreshment and growth in Christ.
