Many contend that the modern loss of interest in religion is a result of scientific advances dispelling the mysterious.
Throughout the ages, Man has pondered the deepest questions:
- Why am I here?
- What is the meaning of life?
- Why is life so unfair?
- What happens after we die?
In today’s modern world, we busy ourselves with work and other diversions to the point of comfortable numbness. Instead of contemplation, we allow images, information, and ideas to wash over us – often without any critical examination.
We should take a bite of ‘food for thought’, savor it, explore it, and decide if it is worthy of our consumption.
Instead, we allow ourselves to be fed through a media feeding tube, passively absorbing whatever is given, whether or not it is beneficial to us.
Without the solitude and silence to ponder the deeper questions, we simply coast along in our busy lives. Diversions are an important part of life but they should not dominate it.
Could a return to God be as simple
as slowing down enough
to contemplate the deeper things?
“Be still and know that I am God.” — Psalm 46:10
“You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart”. — Jeremiah 29:13
… and I think HE would know.
