holding all to it

 Matthew 16

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples,

"If any of you wants to be my follower,

you must turn from your selfish ways,

take up your cross,

and follow me.

25 If you try to hang on to your life,

you will lose it.

But if you give up your life for my sake,

you will save it.

26 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?

Is anything worth more than your soul?

27 For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father and will judge all people according to their deeds.

All I know is if you hold on to your life & thought of everyone as the Lord thinks of them, their transformation will be complete.

iow, you lose the thing we hold most dear because the speed at which you move it isn't the way life as His follower is supposed to be.

I loeave this with you – if we try to be & do all that He desires for us, we will find time to be & do stuff for the Englanders.
