Information Overload

Information overload! Our minds in constant upheaval, thoughts flying!  It is too much, way too much!

Media gives tons of “information” to us although it comes at a cost to us, with their version of morals. Our ability to think on our own is being changed from our youth up to our adulthood.   Concentration is affected, as we get distracted by it all.  We take it in bits & pieces; byte by byte, as quickly as our wifi/data connection feeds it to us.  What technology has done to us we can’t even begin to imagine. Yet here we are (now) online, this message is coming to you through the technology that is changing us and our thoughts and thinking patterns.

How can we stop it? We can’t, not on our own, but we can ask God each day to help us focus on Him instead.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].  Romans 12:2
