iPod and the work of God
Tonight a line of severe storms passed through the area. I found out by checking the online radar loop. It had already gone by me. I had several emergency emails – which I read after the storm had passed. It must have been a doozie. And I kinda like storms.
But I missed this one because I was in the basement. Actually, I missed it because while in the basement, riding on the trainer, I was listening to a podcast on cycling. It’s a fun hobby. But in this case, I got so close to my hobby/interest that I completely missed the big event that was happening around me.
Step back. There is a big event passing by us right now. It’s the work of God. It’s setting off emergency alarms all over the place. It’s way past being a doozie. But are we missing it? Am I? Do we get so close to our interests, pursuits, hobbies, etc. that we are literally deaf to what is going on? Do we only learn about the work of God by reading about it online?
Maybe we could at least take out one earbud.
