“For it is a sin against the reason to tell men that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive; and when once they believe it, they travel hopefully no longer.” C. K. Chesterton
The modern concept of a journey’s purpose being the journey itself is a bunch of BS. This kind of thinking has helped to diminish Christianity and Western Culture and turn everything inward, without an endpoint or true purpose.
It has also turned Christian discipleship inward and made it ineffectual, making the process the purpose rather than becoming transformed and holy before God.
We have become a generation of wanderers who no longer have striving to capture the prize as our objective. Instead we pat ourselves on the back for trying and tell ourselves that to experience the journey was the real purpose of our effort. No wonder we can no longer find true leaders and great men in our culture.
