As technology improves, I find myself becoming increasingly impatient. It I think about using a modem to connect to the web, it brings back the memories of that static sound before the connection tone. And then I think about the phones we used & how I’d stretch the cord too far & rip it off the wall. And rotary phones, well, that’s like the ultimate triceratops dinosaur!
So maybe your walk with the Holy Spirit could use some renovation & even upgrades! Please pop over to Amazon & buy new new book,
Recently, I had a few problems with my phone. It started to delete some of my email accounts a few months ago, then recently, it would do random & unpredictable things. It became uber funky a few days ago & deleted all of my contacts. Yesterday, it decided to delete all of my calendar appointments & this morning, it deleted all of my email accounts. I felt like I was flying blind – but it also reminded me about how we used to not have wireless phones, nor emails, synched calendars, text messages, etc. Clearly, we’ve come a LONG way in our tech usage, but we aren’t so smart that we don’t need God.
I can have the fastest 4G network, but without the “Jesus” direct line, theres some communication lag ,)
I can have the best wifi access we know, but without the Holy Spirit as my wireless, I’m dead in the water
I can have the best love affair with my phone, but no one completes me more than the Trinity 🙂
I’m a big tech fan – I like being able to do things with greater efficiency & sometimes effectiveness, with the use of technology. Its also interesting to chat w my kids about life before the cell phone, personal computers, wifi & all of these wonderful inventions.
With that being said, lets be mindful that technology is a tool & not always the solution. For example, even though we can text, Facebook, FaceTime, tweet, etc, there’s nothing that will ever replace the experience of a real face to face conversation. The same holds true in our chats with God – lets not rely on methods, systems or anything that would substitute for the real face to face presence & fellowship that we can have with God! 🙂
