Internet junkie?stuart | June 25, 2009
Just looking at that it’s actually a pretty horrible picture! I’m sitting here…preparing to preach on Sunday morning…and I’m reflecting on the last few days…
I signed up yesterday to Facebook. Yes, only yesterday…you’ve probably been on it for a long time. Most people have! I’ve been really trying hard to avoid it…I really have. I know it’s good for networking and keeping in touch and all that, and that’s what I hope it helps me with. But it can also be very, very time consuming if you let it be (especially if you’ve easy Internet access through the day – I’ve become aware since joing FB that that’s actually quite a lot of us)…and let’s be honest…we can become very nosey…
The truth is – the Internet can get a real good grip on us – whether it’s Facebook, iTunes or whatever – we dip in and out of this stuff so much that without really knowing it we are slowly becoming an internet junkie – we need our wee hits!
So as I said, I’m getting my head into preparing for Sunday. In light of what I’ve said about the lure of the Internet I found these words in Isaiah very refreshing this morning: ‘The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever’ (Isaiah 40:8)
Hey, the challenge is to spend less time on the Internet and more time in the Word, more time with God…for me anyway…maybe, just for blogging purposes I can change the words…‘Facebook withers and iTunes fall, but the word of our God stands forever’
Right, I’m off and getting into the Word:)
