- We live in an instant world - instant coffee, instant gratification, high speed internet, etc. Even cooking veggies, for crying out loud. You can nuke them in the bag you bought them in. Instant may well be producing lazy. This makes me think of profiting from God's word: not instant. You have to take the time to read, pray, meditate, study. As others have noted, you'd think that with all of our instantness, we would have lots of extra time for this, but it seems we've filled the time we save with other things. Just a friendly reminder that the study of God's word is not instant, but hard work. And maybe as a side bonus it will also help us retain the art of hard work in our easy instant world. Is that such a bad thing?
- Looking for some good summer reading? Al Mohler has some suggestions that look really interesting.
- Check out the video below which speeds up the slow, slows down the fast, and magnifies the small to give us a glimpse of our Creator's handiwork. Where you see man-made things at work (like flight patterns), remember they are designed by men made in the image of God. I don't know the worldview of the presenter, but I know that you have to be blind to not see the Creator at work. In the words of my friend who posted this video, "His fingerprints are conspicuous."
Happy Friday...Sunday's comin'!
