You may say big deal; take the thing home and plug it in. But isn't that how life has become. We want everything streamlined, compact and easy to handle. We want to be able to flip on a switch and have instant results right at our fingertips. Well people, sometimes it is worth doing it the old fashion way. Maybe we would appreciate life more if we took the time to feel the weight of the situation. Or maybe we would remember things more if we wrote in the margins to be examined at another time. Life could even become interesting when we stopped to share an everyday experience with a friend.
I pray as we go this week, we don't throw out the old things in life for the next new big thing. I hope we stop to evaluate what we might miss by flipping a switch. (Yes, I am keeping the Kindle AND my books. Just saying.)
You have made known to me the paths of life:you will fill me with joy in your presence.
