Hey, I hope that you’re day is going well. Today, I will be talking about our culture having a short attention span. I know that it is hard to have a conversation at Starbucks or at a favorite restaurant with a friend or a family member in today’s culture with hearing the familiar sound of a text message from your phone. Now before I discuss this topic further, I want you to view this clip from The Social Network (2010).
One key moment from the clip is at the beginning when Mark Zuckerberg played by Jesse Eisenberg loses the attention of the attorney at the deposition hearing by looking at the rain. In a way, it’s exactly the same way in our relationship with Christ. Sometimes or most of the time, instead of listening to God’s voice when he is speaking to us about sharing the gospel with that friend of ours, praying for a person who is hurting, or loving someone, we talk about sports, our marriage, kids, and I can go on and on and on about what we love to talk about. How do we hear God’s voice? It’s simple. When we are reading the Bible, mediating on God’s Word, and praying to God everyday. When we are doing all of these, God speaks and answers us but it’s on HIS time not ours. So next time when you are talking with someone, pay attention, because you don’t know when you can show the love of Christ to someone who is not a believer, or to someone who is in pain who needs you to love them as Christ has loved us, or someone who just needs to be shown the love of Christ because if Christ loves you and me on a daily basis, then we need to share his love to the world.
Thanks for reading and I hope that this is an encouragement to you in your walk with Christ.
