In our lifetimes there have been many changes. There is the Internet, cell phones, Blackberrys, iPhones, PSP’s, the list goes on and on. Electronic media has taken over much of our lives in such a way that it has created medical problems for many people. Progress in some ways is good but too much “progress” is not. Our lives were not made to revolve around “things”, we were created to pay attention to our Creator and serve Him.
In the world today are so many distractions and temptations that it is hard for “connected Christians” to keep up with everything. If we allow too much of the connected world into our lives our connection to God will be clouded over and lose some of its clarity. I am not saying that God would cut the connection, but our attention will not be focused on Him enough because of the other “stuff” getting in the way.
Our lives have been given to us to spread the Good News of Jesus and His love of all. That is the commandment that was given to His disciples and to all who became followers of Him. Our lives have far more meaning in service to Him than they ever would or could if we were lost and not serving Him. I know there are some who do not know Jesus or have a realtionship with Him but if you would give Him a try, reading the Bible with an open mind and heart, your life and the lives of those around you would be truly blessed.
