The Latest and the Best

The best equipment in the world, used improperly, won’t elevate your game an inch. (John Freeman, literary critic)

In sports, as in life generally, most people look for the best equipment available—the state-of-the-art skis, running shoes, exercise equipment—whatever is the latest. In the tech world, it’s the fastest computer, the smartphone with the most bells and whistles. But using the new stuff most often ends in frustration. (Ask any senior citizen about his newest phone).

Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them. For this world as we know it will soon pass away. (1 Corinthians 7:31)
