Time and the Luxury of Ethics

“Ethics becomes a luxury as the speed of our daily life increases.”

– Judith Shulevitz talking to Ezra Klein (Episode: Sabbath and the Art of Rest)

This conversation on the Ezra Klein Show about the Sabbath offered so many new insights and convictions. A few of my takeaways:

  1. We can’t practice Sabbath alone. 
  2. Practicing Sabbath requires preparation.
  3. Practicing Sabbath teaches us to inhabit time more ethically, with more concern and awareness of people and relationships and love.
  4. Sabbath involves intentional limitations and restrictions because it is about celebration and delight and people.
