We get a lot of information but have lost the art of meditation. We know what is happening, but think very little of what it means. Those who want to go further must also go deeper.
When was the last time you read something from the Bible and thought about it the entire day?When was the last time something you read in the Bible changed the way you saw things throughout the day? If the brain is constantly interrupted by notifications, giving proper attention to deeper truth is impossible.
Because we are at a place in time and technology in which we want to know so much, we have reached a place in which I believe we know too much. The fast pace at which we receive notifications is causing the erosion of one of our greatest God given abilities – the ability to think. We no longer take time to think about what we know.
Isaiah 26:3 says, “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” With constant notifications we are not at a pace for peace. It is difficult to get our minds to “stay” on the Lord when it strays after every vibration and alert that comes through our smartphone.
