Good Morning January 18

It is always amazing to see the changes we’ve experienced over the years. We love our smart phones that keep us in touch with others wherever we are, and allow us to search the world over the internet. If we are without it for a day we feel lost. It was only a few years ago that we would ride through a town looking for a corner phone booth if we needed to make a call. Years before that people would go on a journey and be out of touch for months at a time. We have certainly changed over the years and I don’t think it has all been for good. How do we measure change? Or another question, what is our purpose in life? According to the Westminster Catechism, our purpose is to love God and enjoy Him forever. If that is true, then change is measured by how it supports this purpose, or perhaps detracts from it. People before mass communication learned to love God deeply and share His love with many others. We won’t give up our smart phones, but we should keep the focus on our purpose in life.
