TECHNOLOGY – LOVE OR HATE

3139faff32ee214885d3e37be0c2029f

My husband, bless his heart, says he’s an 1800s guy floundering in a world of 21st century technology.  This morning was a perfect example of that as he tried to fill out information for an employment opportunity on his phone.  I suggested he use my laptop, but of course all our information is on our own devices and he couldn’t get out of the program he was in.  It led to more frustration.

We’re both dinosaurs when it comes to today’s technology.  We grew up in a world where you’d go into an office, fill out an application and wait a few days to get called in for a face to face interview.  Now the world has become so automated, people don’t really get to meet those they’re hiring until the technology has analyzed the information submitted on the internet’ decided whether the applicant fits all the job requirements; and has enough education to do the job.  Interviews are often held online as well.

God is capable of sorting through all our information and deciding if we qualify for heaven, but He doesn’t work the way the world does.  In fact, His technology is far superior to any we have available to us.  If He were to take a look at how we stack up, based on our following His commandments for living, we’d fail miserably and wind up in the trash or spam folders or worse.  Instead, He looks at us through His Son, Jesus and the work He has done on our behalf.

Jesus came to earth as a human being -left His throne in heaven to live among us – to be tempted in every way – to live the life of perfection that we can’t.  His suffering, death and resurrection were the acceptable sacrifice that mankind couldn’t pay.  God knew this from the beginning of time, yet He had the perfect plan for the solution – one that lives on throughout eternity.

We’re not qualified to enter the kingdom of heaven.  We don’t have a leg to stand on.  The only respite we have is through God’s Son, who did it all for us.  He took our sins and destroyed them in the grave.  He did this so that we could live with Him in paradise.

We may never reap the benefits of what technology has to offer – especially when it’s working.  We may never become true nerds or geeks.  Much of our information will wind up in the cloud, (where ever that is) but we can be sure of where we’re going when we leave this planet.  I’d say that beats  any technology the world can throw at us.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I’m married to a man who is stuck in 1960 small town USA–and to be quite honest–I kind of wish I was back there

        I know it ain’t mornin when I say good mornin…it’s just my sayin that I’ve been doin for years. My family and coworkers know that it’s just my weird way of sayin howdy.

        It’s funny how inconsequential stuff like that sticks in a vocabulary sometimes ain’t it?

        Many years ago, Glenn Beck had a radio show, and on certain days he’d make prank calls to people, pretending to be a goofy disc jockey named “flapjack.” Well on one occasion he had someone on the line that was not happy with him, and he said the phrase “good morning” multiple times in an annoying syrupy tone that only made the person that much more irritated at him. It was funny to me at the time, and for some reason, “good mornin” has become my “howdy” since I heard that.
